RAW BANANA CUTLETS WITH FRIED PLANTAINS
RAW BANANA CUTLETS
As I mentioned in my previous blog about the difference between banana and plantain. You can make varieties of dishes with plantain as well as banana. Both recipes is quite different and easy to make. You can serve this as a breakfast either in high tea.
INGREDIENTS FOR RAW BANANA CUTLETS :-
Raw Banana- 2-3
Sago pearls- 1 cup
Roasted peanuts- 1/2 cup
Oil- for frying
Salt- to taste
Black pepper- 1/2 tsp
Ararot- 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder- 1 tsp
Chaat masala- 1 tsp
Rock salt- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Chopped coriander- 1/2 tbsp
Cashew nuts - for garnishing
First of all boil the raw banana then peel it and mash it properly. Add sago (soaked in water for about a night) Add grind roasted peanuts, salt, black pepper, rock salt, red chilli powder, garam masala, chaat masala , ararot, chopped coriander. Mix it well.
I dusted by hands with little rice flour and shaped them into medium sized patties.
Then heat the oil in a pan for deep frying till it smokes. Drop the cutlets into the pan, 2-3 per session for deep frying . Make sure to adjust the heat accordingly. Turn on the other side for uniform browning. Remove and place it on a tissue paper.
Serve hot and garnish with fried cashew nuts on the top of cutlets.
Served with the accompaniments of different dips . I usually prefer curd dip for this. And with fried plantain on the side dish.
INGREDIENTS FOR FRIED PLANTAIN :-
Black pepper- 2 tsp
Salt- to taste
Chaat masala- 2 tsp
Remove the peel from the plantains. And slightly cut in 3-4 pieces.
Pour the oil into the bottom of a frying pan. It should coat the entire bottom of the pan in a thin layer–depending on the size of your pan, you either may not use all of the oil, or may require a little bit more.
Place the pan with oil over medium heat. When the oil begins to shimmer across the surface of the pan, add plantains as you can put 3-4 pieces at once. (it’s OK to do more than one batch). Fry the plantains for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until they have become crispy and medium brown (lift one to test before flipping them all).
Flip over the plantains with either a spatula or tongs, and let them fry for about 1 minute on the second side. The second side will fry faster than the first side.
Remove the plantains from the pan and transfer to the paper towels waiting to the side to cool and blot the excess oil.
Sprinkle Salt , black pepper, chaat masala or any other spices that you want.
