How to Make Roasted or Pan-Fried Banana
Make Roasted Banana in Less Than 15 Minutes!
Roasted bananas are crispy and spicy, and making this snack is easy because it requires only a few ingredients. Another benefit of this snack is the cooking technique: the recipe calls for pan-frying rather than deep-frying, which means that it's healthier.
This dish is a good accompaniment for any meal that contains rice as the main course, or you can simply serve it as a snack.
Let me show you the recipe.
- 2 raw bananas, peeled, chopped into long slices
- 2 tablespoons grated coconut
- 1 teaspoon rice flour
- 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste, or crush 1/4 inch ginger and 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds (saunf)
- 2 pinches turmeric powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garam masala powder
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
- 4-5 tablespoons oil, for pan-frying
- 1/2 teaspoon rasam or sambar powder (optional, gives good taste)
- Peel the bananas. Slice lengthwise in order to get large slices. Immerse the slices in water and then strain.
- Bring about 6 cups of water to a boil. Add some salt. Immerse banana slices in the salted water and let it boil for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the stove. Drain the water. Set the slices aside.
- In a blender or mixer, add grated coconut, ginger, garlic, red chili powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder, rice powder, turmeric powder, salt, and optional rasam/sambar powder.
- Grind, adding some water, to get a smooth and thick paste. Collect the paste in a bowl.
- Heat a pan. Add 1 tablespoon of oil. Dip the slices into the batter. Place them in the hot pan. Keep the flame medium-high. Add a few drops of oil on the edges and on top. Roast the bottom side and then flip.
- Add a few drops of oil on the top. Roast the other side. Remove them from the pan when they become crispy and golden brown on both sides.
- Now, make the next batch in the same way. Finish roasting all the slices.
- Your yummy roasted bananas are ready to munch! You can eat them as is or use them as a side dish for rasam rice, curd rice, or any other meal. Enjoy!
