Sweet Banana Cutlet

We all familiar with spicy cutlets. Here's a sweeter version of cutlets using ripe bananas. The ingredients,method of making, and even  the taste is almost similar to Unnakai, the special iftar sweet snack of Malabar.

Ingredients :

  1. Ripe Plantains : 2
  2. Coconut grated : 3-4 tbsp
  3. Crushed nuts and raisins : 2 tsp
  4. Ghee : 1 tsp
  5. Sugar : 1/2 tsp
  6. All purpose flour(Maida): 1/2 cup
  7. Rice Powder : 1-2 tsp
  8. Oil

Method :

  • Steam cook the plantains well.
  • Slit lengthwise and remove the inner black portion.
  • Grind it in a mixer without adding any water and keep aside.
  • Heat ghee in a pan and roast the grated coconut,crushed nuts and raisins, and sugar together for 1-2 minutes in medium flame.
  • Add this into the mashed banana.
  • Now add the flours in it and knead into a smooth,non sticky dough.
  • Make flattened balls out of them and deep fry.
