Banana dosa

Banana Dosa (Kele poLe)

For a long time now, I am trying to include more fruits in our diet. But somehow it is one food group that is most neglected in this home. I buy bananas, most of the times we finish them off before they get to the overripe stage. Lately, I find atleast 1 or two that get to that stage before I had a chance to finish them.  I thought of making banana bread with them, but get too lazy to bake. Couple of times I made banana puri/buns with them. But lately this kele poLe or banana dosa has become my go to dish. It is made on the similar lines of Konkani classic Surnali. Cardamom makes these slightly sweet dosas very festive.

Grind all ingredients to a smooth batter and keep overnight.

  1. Thanks for this Shilpa.. Wondering if we really need to soak and keep it overnight or can we make this instant using rice flour and mashed banana mix. This is how we used to do it at home earlier. Does it impact the taste ?
