Banana Dosa/Pancake

                                
Plantains are used to make a variety of dishes and this a breakfast recipe. Plantains are loaded with nutrition and in Kerala ripe banana is steamed and is part of  the breakfast. It is low in sodium and high in vitamins and fiber.This is inspired by the payam pori or the banana fritter that is common snack in Kerala. But this does not contain eggs as in usual pancake or fitters. We can convert this recipe into fritters by dropping batter spoonful into hot oil and fry it until golden brown. Here I made in the form of a dosa/pancake. Plantains are firmer than dessert bananas and so does not get mashed up and thus making it a better choice.


Ingredients
Ripe Plantain- 3 
All purpose flour- 1/2 cup
Rice flour- 3 tsp
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Sugar- 3 tsp
salt- a pinch
Cardamon or nutmeg- 1/3 tsp
Ghee- 1 1/2 tsp

Mash up the plantains using a fork. It is not necessary to be a very fine paste. Mix in all the ingredients and 1/3 cup of water ( except ghee) into the batter.If the batter becomes too thick to pour add a little more of water or milk.
Heat a dosa tawa or a greased griddle and spread the batter into small round pancake ( 1/4 cup for each pancake) and drizzle with  ghee. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and then flip.when both sides are golden brown remove from pan and serve hot with syrup .

Try this...
Hope you will all enjoy!!!

  23. I tried this dish, it was a big flop. I don't know where I went wrong. Just followed the exact recipe. May be mine became too watery and was not able to flip over the pancake.
