Yesterday I made raw banana Bajji ( valakkai Bajji).
Here’s the proof 🤪
To continue my story of on the spot innovation.
After making the fritters, there were leftover
marinaded banana slices.
I kept it in the fridge ,having an idea to make
some crispies out if it .While tossing the slices,
in the pan I changed my mind , broke in 2 slices
of bread and tossed with the masalas for few
Then, I switched off the flame ,and thought for
a while how to make it interesting than a crispy
So let’s get to the recipe to know how…,
INGREDIENTS (makes 6)
1/2 of a raw banana slices marinaded in 1 tsp chilli powder,1/4 tsp turmeric,salt
3 slices bread
1 tsp ghee
1 onion chopped
2 green chillies chopped
A handful of chopped coriander leaves
A little water to moisten bread
1 egg ( vegans can opt out)
2 tblsp wheat flour
1/4 tsp garlic paste
A little oil to shallow fry
A handful of Panko crumbs or breadcrumbs ( optional)
Salt to taste
Heat the ghee, and toss in the marinaded
banana slices, till brown .
Add the bread and mix in with the banana,and
toss for another 2-3 minutes.
Remove from fire.Sprinkle little water, on the
bread . Add the rest of the ingredients and
knead to get the consistency of a vada.
Heat oil in a shallow frying pan and fry these
vadas to a golden brown color.
I served it with South India’s dish ‘ Sambhar
Sadam ,valathandu chutney (banana stem) and
this cutlet. It was excellent!
