How to Make Steamed Banana Dumplings

  • Soak the channa dal in water for at least 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, steam the chopped banana blossom with salt (without adding water) or saute them in a pan with few drops of oil.
  • Wash the channa dal thoroughly. Grind the soaked channa dal with fennel seeds and salt coarsely.
  • Add chopped onion, chopped green chilly, crushed garlic, ginger pieces, curry leaves, steamed banana blossom and mix well together with your fingers.
  • Take a small portion and roll into small lemon sized balls.
  • Continue making the dumplings until the ground batter is finished.
  • Heat a cup of water in the pressure cooker and place the lemon sized channa dal balls over a plate.
  • Steam cook (like we do for idlis) up to 10 minutes.
  • Keep aside and let it cool.
  • Serve with spicy chutneys or ketchup.
