BM #92 Day 22 - 

Moving on to the next letter, V, I have chosen to showcase a healthier version of Mangalore Buns. Made with overripe bananas, yogurt and whole wheat flour, these flatbreads are healthy and a delight to have for any meal of the day.

These parathas turned out to be very soft and mildly sweet with a hint of the bananas. My little one enjoyed with Nutella :).

Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 1/4 cup + more
Baking Soda 1/8 tsp
Banana, overripe, 1 big size
Yogurt 3 Tbsp
Besan 1 Tbsp
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Cumin Seeds 1/4 tsp
Pepper, Crushed 1/4 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Oil 2 tsp + more for shallow frying

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, mash the overripe banana. Add in yogurt, besan, sugar, cumin seeds, pepper and salt.

Whisk them together. Add in the flour and baking soda and gradually knead to make a soft dough. 

Ensure that no water is added and if the dough needs more moisture add yogurt little by little.

Cover the dough and set aside for a few hours or overnight to ferment.

After the dough has fermented, the dough tends to get softer, so add a little more dry wheat flour and knead until it is manageable.

Divide the dough into 6-7 portions. 

Roll each portion out separately into 4-5 inch discs.

Gently transfer the disc onto a heated griddle and cook on both sides greasing them as needed until they have golden brown spots all over and have cooked through.

Serve with a curry of your choice.

  4. You guys are tempting me to give a try to this mildly sweet vastad rotis, wish i get a plate of this roti with that alluring curry aside. Delicious and inviting rotis.

  5. This banana roti is new for me ,yes I heard about the buns but a roti - no !
    It sounds delicious , soft and unique , do we need to use a completely ripe banana for it ? So it must be slightly sweet and salty at the same time - like akrackjack ?

  6. While mine turned like rotti, yours is more like soft parathas. I love this version to the core. Let me try it again so that I could get such beautiful bread. With the slight sweetness from banana, these rotis are so yum..

  14. Same pinch Harini, I too made this slightly sweetish soft and delicious roti. Served it with dal. Its a recipe for keeps as I always lean up with over ripe bananas.

  15. CookwithRenu Says:
