Mangalore bun recipe - banana bread recipe - breakfast recipes

I had tasted this bread when I stayed in a bangalore hotel 15 years ago. It was so soft and tasty. For me it is new as my mum never did banana base poori. One of the cook she engaged does use banana for making roti / chapathi. Even though that version of chapathi is soft I felt it was a little sweeter. But for poori that was the first time I have tasted. My son who is big fan of poori so I wanted to try this version sometime. Finally I managed to do it few weeks ago. 

All purpose flour - 1 cup + flour for dusting
Banana - 1
baking soda - 3/4 teaspoon 
sugar - 1.5 tablespoon 
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
yogurt - 1.5 tablespoon 


In a mixie make banana puree (grind banana with yogurt)
in a wider bowl take all purpose flour, soda, sugar, salt and banana puree. Make soft dough. Dough would be little sticky
Close it and keep it aside for 4 hrs. Knead the dough one more time. Take lemon size dough, roll into thick disk dust the flour as needed.
Heat oil in deep curved pan and  reduce the flame to low medium flame. place rolled puri and cook till brown in color. 
Remove it from oil and place it in kitchen tissue paper to drain extra oil. Repeat the process. 
serve it with coconut chutney or any spicy chutney / sambar
