There are many uses of raw banana / green plantain. It can be made into gravies, dry curries, chips, koftas and kebabs. I made the latter with some common ingredients which are easily available in the kitchen. They are perfect for an evening tea-time snack or can be served as appetizers along with your favourite chutney, mayonnaise or tomato ketchup.
- 1 raw banana, boiled, peeled & mashed
- 1 potato, boiled, peeled & mashed
- 1 tsp. ginger, grated
- 1-2 green chilies, chopped
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- 2-3 whole red chilies
- 1 tsp. cumin seeds
- 2 green cardamoms
- 2 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
- salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
- 2 tbs. rice flour
- 1 tsp. kalonji (nigella seeds)
- oil to deep fry
Dry roast the dry red chilies, cumin seeds and green cardamom for a few seconds. When cool, grind and keep aside.
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients, including the ground spice powder (except oil). Knead into a dough. Make equal size portions of it and give it a round flat shape.
Heat oil in a pan and fry them few at a time till golden in colour. Drain on a tissue paper and serve them hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
