Raw Banana Paratha (Green Banana Flat Bread)
Raw Banana Paratha (Green Banana Flat Bread)

Mouthwatering and Filling Breakfast or Lunch

Bananas are my favorite fruit. You can make a variety of dishes with them. You can't eat them raw (I'm talking about the plantain varieties). Hence, cooking them is essential to make them edible.

Green bananas are high in fiber, vitamins, and resistant starch. They are good for diabetics and those on the Weight Watchers diet. They help with digestion and weight control.

You can easily make these parathas for the breakfast, lunch, or brunch. They are delicious and filling food that doesn't need any special side dish as such. You can serve pickles or curds with hot banana parathas to make the meal exciting.

Here we go to the detailed recipe.
