How to Make Ripe Plantain Tikkis

  • Wash well bananas and steam in a steamer or pressure cooker (without weight) for 15 minutes on a medium heat (or until soft).
  • 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.
  • Drain out water and carefully remove thick black vein from the centre.
  • 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.
  • Divide this ripe plantain dough into 7 parts and make flat and round shapes like tikkis.
  • Heat 1 tsp ghee in a non-stick frying pan.
  • 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.
