BALEHANNINA POORI / KELA / BANANA POORI

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

It’s a kind of Poori enriched & enhanced with banana flavor and cardamom … which is also famously known as Mangalore buns. These can be made for breakfast or for evening snacks. I don’t add too much sugar while preparing it, so I always pair it with any spicy subji/Palya, Mildly sweet banana poori and spicy subji/Palya makes a good pair and makes it more tasty and yummy. Since it is a deep fried dish, I prepare it very rarely. I learnt this recipe when we were in Manipal ( near Mangalore-Udupi) and also many South canara style dishes by my neighbour Mrs. Shankari. This time I made Potato/Aloo ras/subji to go with Banana Poori, so sharing the recipe of both the dishes

Originally this poori is made very thick, but I make it little thin as everyone likes it that way at my place
