  1. Step 1

    Peel bananas and cut into thin slices. Soak in a bowl of salted water for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, mix chickpea flour, rice flour, turmeric, chili powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add enough water to moisten the mixture; the batter should be neither too thick nor too runny in consistency. Keep stirring the batter to prevent lumps.
  3. Step 3

    Heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Step 4

    Drain banana slices and pat dry with paper towels. Dip in batter and place in the hot oil. Fry in batches until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
