Banana Fry

Banana fry, is a simple & tasty side dish. I learnt this recipe from my friend Sunitha. I tasted it at her place & loved it, simple & a very nice dish, something different from our normal style of cooking.


Raw Banana – 2
Garlic – 3 pods
Jeera – 3 tsp
Chili Powder – 1 ½ tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil / Pam spray.


1. Peel the Bananas & cut them into round slices about ¼’thick.

2. Grind together Garlic, Jeera & Chili powder to a fine paste using little water.

3. In a pan add the cut banana, salt & the paste. Mix everything well with hands & add ¼ cup water & cook till the bananas are 90% done.

4. Now in another flat non-stick Pan, spray some pam & layer these Bananas in a single layer & cover & cook. They will get brown & crispy, turn & cook other side. Repeat same process till all bananas are done.

Banana fry is ready!! Serve it with rice & dhal or even as an appetizer.. goes well with drinks!
