Few days ago I made a banana walnut loaf using over-ripe bananas, that I somehow wanted to finish off. Thats when a friend gave me a recipe for this sweet paratha. Now honestly, I had never thought of using bananas to make parathas, so I was quite curious about the taste.
And guess what…. I never thought overripe bananas would make such wonderful easy recipes ! I loved it !
I modified the recipe slightly, as I didn’t want to use sugar, or make the paratha too sweet.
So this is my version of the banana paratha – • 2 over-ripe bananas • big pinch of Cardamom powder
• big pinch of Salt
• 1 tsp Jaggery (I just wanted a hint of sweetness, but you can add more if you want your paratha Sweeter) • 1 tsp Ghee • Wheat Flour (as much as the banana paste can hold, and make a soft yet firm ‘chapati’ like dough) ● Blend cardamom powder , jaggery and bananas to a fine paste.
● Knead a soft yet firm dough by adding little wheat flour at a time, to the banana mixture. Add Salt and Ghee while kneading. ● Roll out Parathas, and cook on a griddle till golden and crisp on the edges. Use few drops of ghee on the sides while cooking. Serve hot
