      Remove the cover and cut both the ends of banana. From atleast 1 inch of one end make a slit in the plantain lengthwise. i.e the end parts remain intact and wont open.With the end of a spoon, carefully scrape the black seeds inside. Make all bananas like this.

Press and Stuff the filling into these slits using hands. 
 Mix together maida and salt.Add water to this and make a thick batter out of it.Cover the slits using these paste. This is to restrain the stuffing to come out while frying.

Heat oil in a pan.Carefully place the bananas into oil and with a spoon push and pour oil onto the bananas. Flip  and fry them till they turn golden brown.When done remove from oil.
