Ripe Bananas – 3 (Big ones)

Wheat Flour – 4 cups

Yogurt / curd – 1 cup

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Baking soda – a pinch



Puree the banana and sugar together.


In a large mixing bowl, add the pureed banana – sugar mix.


Add the wheat flour, curd, baking soda and salt.


Mix together into a soft pliable dough similar to the chapathi dough.


P.S: Adjust the wheat flour quantity to attain the dough consistency.

Cover it with an aluminium foil and set aside for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a deep fry pan. Take small ball sized dough and roll it into the size of the puri but a tad bit thicker than the puris.


Deep fry till it fluffs up and turns golden brown in color on both sides.


Serve hot with some coconut chutney or ketchup or any pickle or relish it as it is with a hot cup of coffee.
