During the festive season, you often find your hands full of mithai plus fruits that are ripe at about the same time! At such time, my over-ripe bananas often end up on our breakfast table in this unusual yummy dish.

You’ll know it’s tasty when you try it!!

Ingredients:

  1. Ripe bananas: 2-3
  2. Salt: 1/3 teaspoon(to taste)
  3. Sugar or Jaggery: 1 teaspoon
  4. Tamarind Pulp: 1/2 teaspoon
  5. Finely chopped green chilli(non-spicy variety): 1
  6. Finely chopped coriander leaves: 1-2 teaspoons
  7. Fine Semolina(sooji/barikrava): 3 tablespoons
  8. Ghee or oil for roasting
  9. Butter if desired: for serving

Method:

  1. In a bowl, peel/mash the bananas.
  2. Add ingredients 2-6. Mix well.
  3. Add semolina. The mixture should not be too dry.
  4. On a non-stick frying pan, put 1/2 teaspoon ghee or oil and spread all over the frying pan.
  5. Ladle a large serving spoonful of the mixture.
  6. Spread evenly- thickness of a crepe or utappa.
  7. Cover and brown on a medium flame.
  8. When brown, turn over and brown the other side as well.
  9. Serve hot with (optional)a small dollop of butter.

This recipe is really yummy. However, you may omit the green chilli if you are not used to its ‘spice’ quotient.
