Mangalore Buns

How to make Mangalore Buns

  1. Add bananas to a deep bowl.Mash them really well .If you are not able to do so, use a mixer to grind to smooth paste.
  2. Add mashed banana, wheat flour, salt, baking soda, jeera, sugar and yogurt into the bowl
  3. Mix and form a dough similar to a chapati dough.If you are not able to form a dough add few more teaspoons of yogurt.
  4. The dough should be sticky ,so add few drops of oil while finishing up.Let dough rest for 6-7 hours.
  5. Take small portions and roll in to thick disc like pooris.
  6. Heat oil in a deep pan.Slide the poori in slowly so that oil doesn't spill.
  7. Gently press in the middle while it is puffing up.Turn and fry the poori until brown.

My Tip:

Slide the poori in when the oil is hot, if you are done with one poori then wait for the oil to heat up a bit.
