I did always wonder why these buns were called buns instead of any bajji or bonda...what is in the name.. it is taste which matters was my final decision.. My neighbour S got me into this and this is her recipe which I followed to the z to get yummy tasting Mangalore buns...All we need is some ripe bananas and maida to make this sinfully tasty dish.
I tried them this evening for snack and had to struggle and wrangle a few for the photograph.
They are pretty good for the first time. Next time i promised myself i will give the required round shape...
2 ripe Bananas , medium sized
2 cups of Maida / all purpose flour
salt to taste
1/2 to one spoon of soda
4 tbsp curds
1 spoon salt and
Oil for deep frying...
Mash the bananas completely so that there no lumps left.. Add sugar, salt soda Mix the maida and curds to a chapati dough. use yogurt sparingly and jusr right to get the prefect consistancy.. smear oil all over the dough, cover and let it rest for about 4 to 5 hours.
Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan. On medium heat , make tiny ball of this risen mixture.. with oil smeared hands. It is tricky but I used oil on a aluminum foil and flattened them out . Deep fry both sides to a lovely brown colour. The yummy buns are ready to be served.
Enjoy as evening snack with hot tea...
