Here is one which is a popular one and more so a money saving dish.
What would you do when you have a few banana as left over – over ripe, the skin of the fruit blackened and the pulp inside became very soft and mushy?
Well, this is what you can do:
- Take 4 over-ripe banana
- one cup of wheat flour
- half cup of powdered rice or corn-flour
- add a bit of sugar to taste- if you feel
Now mash and blend them well to a batter consistency.
Heat oil, carefully drop small ball like dough, each about a teaspoon in quantity, into the oil . Fry them till a bit brown.
Half a spoonful of fennel seeds or cardamom powder can also be added to the batter to enhance the taste.
Serve hot, if possible. If needed, you can dust them with some powdered sugar as well.
