Plantain Sushi Rolls with Caramel Sauce

 Plantain Sushi Rolls with Caramel Sauce

This is one recipe that was developed while I went to bed to sleep, sometimes the best recipes comes to my mind when I switch off myself for the day. I sometimes feel like preparing it and devouring it right away and note down the recipe in my book then and there. Let me tell you, this is one snack/dessert that is definitely a treat to your taste buds.
Make this to impress your guests and they are gonna love it! This is preferably made using ripe plantains. Once you start frying the oats coated plantains, your house is going to smell like baskin robbins to top that, the aroma of the caramel sauce is like the cherry to your cake.
This is probably a fusion recipe, as it involves frying of plantains aka nendra pazham/ Kerala bananas, which is then smothered/ drizzled with Caramel sauce with a final touch of blanched and chopped almonds.
Since I invented the recipe, I was going about to put a name for this dish, finally settled for sushi rolls, teehee, forgive my quirkiness :) 

This is such an easy recipe, I urge you to try it. After all it is hubby approved and my girl loves it! 

Ingredients :

  • 3 Ripe Plantains
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • Salt, as required
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup Quick Oats
  • Oil, for frying

Caramel Sauce

  • 1/2 cup White granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream/ thick cream, room temperature 
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence, optional
  • Blanched and Chopped Almonds, for garnish 


  1. To prepare the Caramel Sauce, in a heavy duty sauce pan, heat sugar, stirring comstantly. Sugar will start to melt and once it reaches an amber color, reduce heat as you don't want to burn it.
  2. Ps: Please be precautions when you make caramel sauce, as it bubbles rapidly and can cause burns if distance is not maintained.
  3. Next, add your room temperature butter and stir in until melted and combined.
  4. Allow to cook for half a minute, slowly pour the heavy cream, little at a time and stir it in.
  5. Remove from heat and add salt and vanilla essence if desired.
  6. Allow to cool slightly before using the sauce.
  7. To prepare the plantain sushi rolls, dip the plantains in the all purpose flour slurry (made using flour+water+salt) and then coat in the oats well.
  8. Shallow fry/ deep fry until golden and crisp.
  9. Serve immediately with the caramel sauce prepared earlier and top with blanched and chopped almonds.


  • Make sure to use room temperature butter and whipping cream / thick cream for better results.
  • The sugar might look like it’s crumbling when it’s starts to melt, it’s quite normal, it will melt completely after a while.
  • My caramel sauce looks a bit pale as I was in a hurry and did not wait the sugar to turn amber in color. 
  • You may also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for added deliciousness.
