How to Make Raw banana bhakri

  • Cut the raw bananas into two or three pieces. Cover with water and cook with the peel, till soft.
  • Peel the cooked bananas and blend in a mixer along with turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt.
  • Add the rice flour and gingili oil and run the mixer for a few more seconds so that it comes together like a dough.
  • Transfer it into a bowl and add the chopped onion, grated coconut, green chillies, ginger, cumin seeds and coriander leaves.
  • Knead all the ingredients together and leave it covered for a while.
  • Grease a banana leaf or butter paper and place a ball of the banana dough on it.
  • Wet your fingers and pat the sticky dough into a moderately thick and round bhakri.
  • Invert the leaf onto a greased and heated tava and gently peel it off when the bhakri sits on the tava.
  • Drizzle with oil and gently cook till the bhakri is done.
  • Flip it on the other side and cook on medium flame.
  • Pour one more spoon of oil around the edges and cook till the bhakri gets the golden tiger stripes on both sides.
  • Top it with a blob of butter and serve the Baalekai Bhakri immediately with your favourite vegetables.
