Spicy Banana Pepper Fritters

These Hot Chili Peppers which are commonly known as ‘Banana Peppers’ is named because it resembles the shape of a banana. It is 6-inch-long pepper, mild hot because of its seeds.

These banana pepper fritters are easy to make in less than 30 minutes. My husband wanted it spicy so I haven’t removed the seeds in my recipe. If you cannot take the spice, I recommend slicing the pepper vertically through the center and removing the seeds before coating with the chickpea flour.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes



Vegetable oil for deep frying

Banana peppers – 7 (spicy)

Chickpea / Gram flour (Besan) – 1 1/2 cup

Kashmiri Red chili powder – 1 tbsp

Salt – 3/4 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Water – 3/4 cup




1. Prepare a paste by adding all the ingredients: flour, chili powder, salt, turmeric. Add 3/4 cup water and mix to form a thick paste. Add more water if necessary, the batter must be thick.
