Nendra baale Fry is a sweet dish. It is one of the traditional dish which is served in festival or feast and big functions.
Nendra baale is one variety of banana and it is used in shallow frying or deep frying. We do prepare Banana Halva using this banana. Nenra baale podi (fried fritters) is also prepared and it is very tasty snack.
In Kerala especially these bananas are used more. Steamed banana is served in breakfast and it is one of the healthy dish, Nendra Baale chips are very tasty and slight sweet crunch chips are nice to eat.
