Balehannu dose | Banana Dosa

I learnt this dosa from my sodaratthe(aunty). She gets couple of nicely ripened bananas from the nearby temple almost 3 times a week. And.., this is how she utilizes the bananas.., quite impressive, isn't it??

As I have mentioned before, because of the humid weather in Singapore.., the bananas doesn't last long, hence.., this is a better way to finish the bananas faster. If you have ripened bananas , go ahead & prepare this in the coming days!!

Ingredients:
1 cup raw rice
1 tsp fengreek seeds
1 nicely ripened banana (banana should be 2 times the rice, so., around 1.5 to 2 cups of banana for 1 cup of rice)
a fistful of rice flakes/poha, avalakki
salt according to taste

Other ingredients:
About 1/4 tsp or a little more of oil for each dosa.

Method:
  • Soak the rice, rice flakes & fenugreek seeds together for around 4-5 hours.
  • Make a smooth batter of rice, fenugreek seeds & banana. Batter should be like a thick milkshake.
  • Keep the batter aside for 8-10 hours for fermentation.
  • Add salt just before preparing the dosas. Prepare thick dosas (like pancakes) & serve it hot with chutney or any spicy curry of your choice.


I have published few other recipes using banana.., you can have a look at them here.
