Raw banana cutlets

Yesterday was Mother's day.I decided to make a nashta of raw banana cutlets for my mom & dad !

Ingredients : 3 raw bananas,2 medium carrots, a few kadi pattas ( curry leaves), 1 tbsp finely chopped hara dhania, 2 slices of brown bread ( even white bread is fine ) 1 tsp flax seed powder ( optional ),1 tsp finely chopped green chillies ( or use 1 tsp red chilli powder), 1 tbsp lemon juice ( in summers,1 tsp grated raw mango can be used ),1/4 tsp tureric,1/4 tsp hing, 2 tbsp oil,salt to taste.

Method : Clean & grate the carrots.Keep aside.Finely chop the kadi pattas after washing them.Mix them with the garted carrots,chopped green chillies & chopped coriander.Keep aside.

Pressure cook the raw bananas for 3 whistles.Let it cool.

Meanwhile crumble the bread slices into fine grainy powder in mixer.Roughly cut green chillies,kadi pattascorainder can be added to this in the mixer along with roughly broken bread slices to get an evenly mixed bread chilli-corainder-kadi patta mix !

Mix this bread crumble with grated carrots-chilli-corainder-kadi patta mix.Add salt ,lemon juice ( or grated raw mango ) ,flax seed powder,haldi & hing.Mix nicely.Keep aside. Peel the raw bananas & mash them.The mashed raw bananas are very dry.Mix the mashed bananas with the bread carrot mix.It is a going to be a very dry mix.A little water or curds can be added to make for a wet dough.I went along with the dry dough.

Grease palms with little oil & take a small amount of dough & pat it into a circular shape like a pedha though a bigger pedha.Repeat with the remaining dough & make circular pedhas.I made some 12 pedhas with the dough.

Warm a tawa on the gas.Smear the taw a with oil.Transfer the pedhas 5-6 at a time on to the tawa.Cover with lid.Let it cook for 5 minutes.Uncover & flip the pedhas over .They will hav e browned on the bottoms.Cover & cook for 2-3 minutes.Take them off from the tawa. They should have burned  brown a little or turned golden brown on the other side as well.If not ,cook for a minute more.

Now cook the remaining pedhas likewise.Serve with ketchup or any chutni of your choice !
