Notes

  • Do not blend too much in mixer, else the mixture will become watery. It’s nice to have small chunks of bananas in the mixture.
  • Kneading is the most important part in this recipe, just rolling, pushing and folding the dough over and over till it all comes together. Adding 2 tsp- 1 tbsp oil at end helps to form a smooth dough. So do not try to add extra flour.
