Mangalore Buns ( with wheat flour )

                 Traditionally we make  Mangalore  buns using maida and sugar which are a big no-no these days for health conscious people.So I thought of this healthy version using wheat flour and jaggery.Except for the colour which is a little darker, this tastes  as good as the traditional version. So let’s see the recipe !

Ingredients :-

  • 2 big ripe bananas.
  • 2  tbsp curds.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup of powdered jaggery.
  • 2 tbsp oil.
  • 1 tsp cooking soda powder.
  • 1 handful besan (optional)
  • Wheat flour 5 cups.(depends upon the size of the bananas)
  • Oil for deep frying.

Method :-

  1. Grind the bananas, curds, salt, jaggery, soda all together in a mixer.
  2. Pour the mixture in a big wide bowl.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of hot oil.Mix well using a spatula.
  4. Now add the besan (optional) and then add wheat flour little by little and knead  well, till it becomes a soft dough.
  5. Don’t add the wheat flour all at once . Because if you have used  smaller bananas you may need less flour. You might need more if you had  add bigger  bananas.
  6. Once the dough is done, smear it with oil, preferably coconut oil, at all sides, keep it aside for atleast  10- 12 hours  before you use it.
  7. Make small balls,roll them like thick  pooris and deep fry till they turn into golden colour.
  8. Soft , fluffy buns  are ready to relish.

Note :-

    1. This tastes good with ginger chutney.
    2. You may also eat it as such !!
