"Nendre baale" as known in Konkani or Macho Bananas in Mexico are the best. Regular bananas cannot be used to make these Phodi's. Macho bananas are easily available at most farmer's market and grocery stores.
1 ripe macho banana
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
a pinch of salt
a few tsp of rice flour
oil/ghee (clarified butter)
How it's made:
Heat an iron skillet. Spread a little oil or ghee. (Bananas fried with ghee tastes better, but I stick to oil and use a drop of ghee for flavor)
Peel banana. Cut banana horizontally and then into 1" pieces. Add red chilli powder and salt. Mix well.
Roll in rice flour and fry on both sides until golden brown.
