  • 3 - medium sized ripe plantains
  • 2 tsp - Ghee
  • 1 tsp - Raisins
  • How to Make Ripe Plantain Tikkis:

    1. Wash well bananas and steam in a steamer or pressure cooker (without weight) for 15 minutes on a medium heat (or until soft).
    2. Microwave method - arrange in a microwave safe bowl with 3 tbsps of water and microwave high for 4 minutes 30 seconds on 750 Watts. Keep aside to cool for 15 minutes.
    3. Drain out water and carefully remove thick black vein from the centre.
    4. Mash well and make a soft dough. If the steamed banana texture is very soft and difficulty in making a soft dough, add 2 tsp corn flour and mix well. Finally add raisins and mix well.
    5. Divide this ripe plantain dough into 7 parts and make flat and round shapes like tikkis.
    6. Heat 1 tsp ghee in a non-stick frying pan.
    7. Arrange tikkis carefully and shallow fry on a medium heat until golden colour on both the sides. Sprinkle remaining ghee when turning the other side. Serve hot.
