Banana rotti

Are you a banana flavor lover? If yes, this recipe is for you. If no, please ignore it. Usually I buy bananas everytime I go for grocery shopping. But then I forget to eat them and they get black spots on them. So I use such over ripe bananas to make some dishes. One such dish is this banana rotti. My friend’s mom Mrs. Sheela Hebbal gave me this recipe. This dish gets ready in literally 20mins.

Ingredients:
1 cup rice flour
1 big ripe banana
1 tea spn jaggery
1/2 cup coconut
Oil/ghee
Salt

Method:
Cook banana, jaggery and salt in 1/2 cup water. Turn off the heat.
When it is still hot, add rice flour, coconut and mix. Spread it on the hot tava with hand. Apply oil and fry from both sides.
Serve hot.

Serves : 2
Preparation time: 15min

Hi Shilpa,

My mom doesn’t cook the bananas.. she mixes all the above ingredients and spreads it on to the tava. We call it ‘Kelyache Maskat’

Sorry forgot to add some more comments: In my mother’s version of this, we mix the wheat flour, ripe bananas, water, jaggery, cardomom powder and use ghee instead of oil. But rice flour is interesting..will try it some time. Thanks.

Hi Shilpa, glad to hear you had a nice time at Thanksgiving — did you enjoy Colorado Springs? I vacationed there this summer and thought it was so pretty.

Banana rotis look wonderful! I always have overripe bananas… will try making these next time, thanks! 🙂

Hi Shilpa, This is so much easier than the Banana mulik/ muluk, that I make. I freeze all my overripe bananas, so I have a ready stash to make your recipe. Thanks a bunch !

This is a nice healthier recipe of what I am used to eating.
My mom makes banana puris (mangalore buns). We mix mashed mashed ripe banana’s with maida. Add a little salt (1 tsp). Usually since the banana’s are ripe you don’t any extra water to make the dough, but if needed a little yoghurt is added. Deep fry on low heat till almost dark brown color. They are very tasty..

Try making the same with rava , green chilli , very little jaggery and ginger. No cardmom. You need to add enough water to soak the rava for a few mins. We call it kelle bhakri. I give it all the time as a breakfast to my kid.

btw i do not cook the bananas .i just mix them and leave it for 5-10 mins..then spread it on the tava with my fingers. Cover it with lid and let it cook on once side. This sure needs a little oil..else it can get dry. It stays well when cold too.

We make it with wheat flour instead of rice flour we call it kellyachi bhakri in goa, but rice flour sounds intresting I am going to it once. We also make appe with rava using the same above ingredients and cardamom added for flavour.

Mamatha

says:

We make this with Soji, (i.e Local rava or Bombay rava)
Instead of jaggery we use a little sugar and also green chillies. fry with Ghee.

says:

i would like to try this but one question do i have to cut banas into small pieces & boil. and do i have to mix with hand or put in the blender?

says:

You can cook bananas any way you want – cut into pieces or whole. Need not use the blender. You can just mash them up with fingers.
