Healthy and Tasty Banana Puri
Raw Banana Whole
- Water chestnut – 240 grams
- Ajwain – 2 grams
- rock salt as required
- Green Raw Bananas – 2
- ghee as required
Step-1 Boil raw banana and grate it finely
To make these puris, take a vessel full of water and boil peeled raw bananas in it. When the raw bananas boil, peel them and grate them.
Step – 2 Knead the dough using banana, all purpose flour and other spices
After this, take a mixing bowl and mix grated bananas along with water chestnut flour, rock salt and carom seeds. Mix well and knead the dough. If you feel that the dough is not coming together properly then you can use water. After the dough comes together, keep it covered and untouched for about 30 minutes. After this knead the dough and make it hard.
Step – 3 Make small balls from the dough and prepare the poori by rolling it.
At this stage, start preheating the ghee in a deep bottom frying pan (kadhai). When the ghee is heating up, make small balls out of the dough and roll them into flat discs or puris with the help of a rolling pin.
Step – 4 Deep fry the pooris till golden brown and enjoy with your favorite curry
Ghee should become hot enough and ready for frying. Carefully drop one poori into the hot oil and deep fry it on medium flame. Flip the poori and cook from both the sides till the poori turns golden-brown in color. Fry one poori at a time. Remove excess ghee from the fried puris. Enjoy it with your favorite curry or gravy.
