Roasted Raw Banana


Chop up plantains into small pieces and rub into it some sesame oil, turmeric powder, chilly powder and coriander powder.

Dry roast some cumin, fennel, coconut and garlic. Do not overdo it. We only want them to release their lovely fragrance. Add the raw banana. Cook covered on low flame for 5 mins. Open and mix it well. Cook another 5 mins covered and then switch off the stove. Do not open the pan. Let it sit in its heat for a couple more mins.

A super fiber kick to start a week.

Raw Banana and Peas Cutlets


Snip the ends of the raw banana but don’t peel them. Immerse them along with some peas into boiling hot water. Add some turmeric. Cook covered after reducing the heat to low. Five minutes later switch off the stove but don’t uncover them just yet. Let them stay for another 10 mins.

Finely chop lots of coriander and a green chilly. Remove the banana’s and peas and after peeling the banana’s chop them up.

Run this thru a blender and add some besan flour. Season with salt. Mix it well.

Make into cutlets and shallow fry in oil. Do not use high temperatures as that will burn them. Be gentle and enjoy a very tasty and smooth treat.
