We know different types of “bajji”s that can be served with rice and eaten as snacks. Banana bajji is also of that kind. Here I have used ‘palayankodan’ banana because it is very soft and tasty. Raw banana should be used to make bajji.
- 1 palayankodan banana
- ½ cup of wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon of chilli powder
- ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 petal garlic
- 1 small onion
- Salt as required
- ½ cup of water
- Coconut oil required to fry banana
Peel the banana. Slice the banana vertically into thin pieces as shown above.
Make a paste of galic and small onion. Add required salt , a pinch of turmeric powder and ½ teaspoon of chilli powder into paste. Add a small quantity of water and mix well. Put banana slices in the plate and using the hands apply the mixture on the banana slices.
Take another vessel and add wheat flour into it. Add required salt, ½ teaspoon of chilli powder, a pinch of turmeric powder. Make a thick paste by adding required water.
Keep a kadhai over the flame. Pour coconut oil into it. Take each banana slice and dip it in the wheat flour paste. Apply the flour on the sides of the slices.
When the oil gets heated put the pieces of banana one by one. Stir it with a turner. Let both the side s become brown in colour.
Transfer it into another vessel. Repeat the process till all the pieces are fried.
It will be crispy when served hot.
