Last week we had an opportunity of tasting different cuisine in Southern Spice’ located at Taj Coromandel, Chennai. Among different cuisine the ‘Banana Dosa’ which was the signature recipe of "Southern Spice". Soft bananas amazingly battered up and deep fried with, ghee flavours of jaggery and cardamom. An interesting sweet treat, which will be loved by all ages. We liked it so much I could not resist asking the chef for the Recipe. Yesterday I tried at home.
Maida- 125 gm
Rice Flour- 25 gms
Jaggery -200 gms
Cardamom powder-1 tsp
1.Pour water in a pan and bring it to boil. Add jaggery and let it dissolve then Filter the Jaggery water.
2. Peel the skin of the banana and mash it well. Then add the maida, rice flour, cardamom powder and mix well.
3.Along with this mashed banana then add the jaggery water and mix it .(I added jaggery to ensure that sweetness is according to our taste. You can add or reduce jaggery as desired.)
4.Mix everything to form a smooth batter without lumps. The batter will not be runny, it will be little thick like vada batter.Heat ghee in a pan, once it is hot enough pour a spoon of batter to form small disc. Fry each side till it turns golden brown.
5. Remove from ghee and drain it in tissue paper.
6.The yummy and delicious Banana dosa is ready to be served .Serve hot.
