Raw Banana Bonda

This is a deep fried snack! Bonda is usually prepared using potatoes; however, this time around I wanted to try with raw bananas. Note that the ingredients used for this snack is slightly different from that of bonda made from potatoes.

Ingredients: 1 raw banana, 2 small carrots, handful chopped mint leaves, handful chopped coriander leaves, 1/2 inch chopped ginger, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 2-3 tsps red chilli powder, 2-3 tsps cumin powder, gram flour (besan), 1 tsp corn flour, water, a pinch of soda, salt as per taste, cooking oil for frying

Method: In a pressure cooker, cook the banana (with peel) and carrots. When cool, removed the peel, mash the banana and carrots in a bowl, and add salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, ginger, mint and coriander leaves; mix well.

In another bowl, mix together gram flour (besan) and corn flour with salt, red chilli powder, cumin powder, and soda. Add water to get a consistency good enough to dip the filling and then put it in the oil. If batter is thin, will stick to the pan (with oil). If batter is thick, filling may remain uncooked.

In a pan, heat oil. Make small balls of filling, dip in the batter, and then gently drop in the oil. After fried well, remove on tissue paper to drain excess oil, and then serve hot with ketchup or chutney of any sort.

Happy weekend!
