Buns is served at most local Mangalorean restaurants under breakfast menu. Some people like it with chutney & some with Dalitoy (which I have yet to try).
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup yogurt
1 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1 cup sugar
soda bi carb - a pinch
2-3 cups maida (flour) + a few tbsps
oil for deep frying
How it's made:
Sieve 1 cup maida & soda bicarb so that they mix well together. Set aside.
Mash banana to a smooth paste. Add in yogurt , jeera and whisk well. Add sugar. (Since I like it medium sweet, I use 1 cup sugar). Add maida little at a time to make a dough a little softer than making roti/chapati. Set aside for 4-5 hours.
Roll out a lemon size ball of dough to about 1/4" thick. You can dust some flour on surface to make rolling easier.
Deep fry one at a time to golden brown in color on medium high flame.
Makes approx. 30 buns
