Raw Banana Cutlets

As promised, I am back with the recipe for the Raw Banana cutlets. It makes a good side dish with rice and rasam, bisibelebath and also goes well as a snack with tea or coffee.

2 Raw Banana
1 medium onion
1 green chilli
2 tspoon sambar powder
1 tspoon lime juice
8-9 tbspoon posto (poppy seeds)
sprig of cilantro
pinch of turmeric
2-3 tspoon oil
salt to taste

Chop the bananas into 4-5 pieces and boil it.
In the meantime, finely chop the onions, green chilli and cilantro.
Mash the boiled bananas and mix it with the masalas.
Add the onion, green chilli & cilantro.
Add the lime juice right before making the cutlets.
Divide the dough into small balls and flatten them.
Heat a non stick flat pan with oil.
Dip the cutlets in posto and place them on the pan.
You can also replace posto with rava or breadcrumbs. It gives a nice crispness to the cutlets.
Serve hot.
