Steps to Prepare

Step 1

Making the Koftas :

  • Cut the whole Raw Banana from the middle, without peeling the skin, pressure cook the Raw Banana & Potato up to 2 whistles, and keep aside the pressure cooker for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes open the pressure cooker, take the boiled banana & potatoes from the cooker and keep aside to cook down completely.
  • In the meantime make the "Bhaja Masala" by dry roasting¬† Cumin Seeds, Coriander seeds & Whole red chili, and ground them to make a coarse powder, keep aside. Now peel the skin of the banana & potato, & into a large bowl mash them without leaving any lumps.
  • In the same bowl, add chopped onion, chili, salt, sugar, bhaja masala and mix well. Now add Besan, but do not add all the besan at a time, add as required to make the soft but not sticky dough.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions. Apply some mustard oil on your palm, take each portion, roll into balls and slightly flatten each ball into a patty shape.
  • Heat oil in a wok, place the koftas on the hot oil and on a medium flame deep fry till they turn golden.
