One of the popular breakfast in South Kanara distt is . When I was a kid I used to love this because of its sweetness. It is my mother in law's fav item and she was never tired of making them. I remember eating lots of buns when I came here as a bride as it was a popular Menu at Sree Vignesh. There was also Phoa or Upma/Uppittu accompanying the Buns. I am sure kids would love this preparation
WHAT YOU NEED:
(makes 24 pieces)
All purpose flour/ Maida 1 1/2 cups
Sugar 8 tsp
Banana, over ripe, 1
Soda bi carb a little
Butter milk to make dough
Oil to fry
|MY KIDS' FAV|
HOW TO MAKE :
Sieve maida, soda bi carb and salt together.
In a little warm water melt the sugar, mash the banana and add.
Add maida in the sugar water and slowly adding butter milk prepare a soft dough, like chappati dough.
Keep this dough covered for 4-6 hours. ( I kept this dough overnight, it came out so soft and fluffy)
Divide this dough in to 24 parts and make small balls.
Roll out each ball applying some maida, in to 4-5 inch diameter, like poories but thick ones. Otherwise the dough will stick on both the roller and board.
Heat kadahi with enough oil. When it is hot, fry the rolled poories one by one. When you slide the poori in a hot oil, just press the poori inside the oil, several times with the spotted spoon, it helps the poori to become puffed.
Take out the poories with spotted spoon and place them on a tissue papers.
