Kanchkolar Chop / Raw Banana Fritters

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

After marriage during my stay in India, I was a fan of my MIL's Kanchkolar Chop. She used to make them at least once in a week in the evening. Anything batter fried or crumb coated is either Chop or Cutlet to Bengali, like Alur Chop, Mochar Chop, Enchorer Chop, Macher Chop. The taste of her Raw Banana Fritter was so much better than the street shop's ones. Adding chopped onion, coriander leaves and chaat masala is my addition. She used to make curry with left over Kanchkolar Chop. That also tastes yumm! Try this easy recipe in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.
