Couple of weeks ago, my partner went to an asian store and bought raw bananas, and excited he was that he has got something new, something exciting, and he asked, “Can we make something tasty from it”?

Hummmm…I felt what to do with these raw bananas?! Oh yes, I thought I can make a dry curry of these bananas and I shared the thought with partner. He did not sound very excited about the idea, perhaps because I said it may taste close to that of a dry potato curry.

  1. Don’t overcook the bananas as we want them to be soft and tender not mushy.
  2. You can shallow fry them too instead of deep frying (relatively healthy option, or best if you use Air fryer )
  3. You can make them for fasting as well. Just skip adding cornflour and spices. Add fasting flour like tapioca/buckwheat/chestnut etc and fasting spices like rock salt and black pepper powder instead.
  4. You can skip pressure cooking bananas too. Try adding grated raw bananas. The cutlets taste good this way too.
