Raw Banana Mixed Dhal Cutlet
An interesting variation to the usual vegetable cutletâ€¦ Raw bananas and mixed dhal adds up to the nutritious quotient of the recipeâ€¦ The cutlet is scrumptious, full of flavors and most importantly it is tummy fillingâ€¦Best choice to serve at parties as starters or as anytime snack or as a part of breakfast spreadâ€¦In this recipe I have included spinach or palak also, just to give some color and make it healthier. It is pan fried and hence calls for very little amount of oil.
- Raw Banana- 2 large sized, unripe
- Mixed Dhal- 1 cup equal amount of thuvar, channa, green moong, yellow masoor, urad dhal
- Spinach or Palak- 12 cup finely chopped
- Green Chilly- 12 tbspn finely chopped
- Garlic paste- 1 tsp
- Ginger Paste- 12 tsp
- Jeera Powder- 12 tsp
- Coriander powder- 1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder- 12 tsp optional
- Cornflakes- 2 or 3 tbspn coarsely grounded
- Cooking oil to pan fry the cutlets
- Wash and soak mixed dhal (equal amount of thuvar, channa, green moong, yellow masoor, urad dhal) in water for 3 hrs. Grind it coarsely using very little amount of water.
- Wash and finely chop the palak or spinach leaves. Keep it aside.
- Pressure cook or microwave raw bananas with skin until they are soft but firm. Bring it to room temperature. Peel the skin and grate the bananas.
- In a large bowl, mix grated raw bananas, coarsely grounded mixed dhal batter, finely chopped palak, chopped green chillies, ginger garlic paste, jeera powder, coriander powder and salt.
- Mix well and shape the dough into medium sized round cutlets. Let the thickness be about 12 inch. Coat them with coarsely powdered cornflakes.
- Refrigerate the cutlets for 15 minutes or till we use. (This helps to dehydrate the moistness in the cutlets and hence crispier when toasted).
- Just before serving, cook the cutlets on hot griddle or pan with a tsp of cooking oil. Toast it covered with a lid for few seconds. Open the lid and flip the cutlets to roast both the sides until they turn golden in colour.
- Serve hot with any chutney or sauce of your choice.
To pep up its spiciness, I have added little bit of red chilly powder also and that is optional. http://ssksblendsnflavours.blogspot.in/2017/04/raw-banana-mixed-dhal-cutlet.html
