Mangalore Buns

  Preparation Time : 15 mins+ 4 hours resting time | Cooking Time : 20 Mins |Makes:11

     All purpose flour| Maida    1 cup
     Ripe Banana    1 ( I used the long variety)
     Baking Soda     1 tsp
     Sugar      2 tblsp
     Jeera | cumin seeds   1/4 tsp
     Salt     a pinch
     Yogurt   2 tblsp
     Oil      for deep frying
     Atta | wheat flour   for dusting


  • Puree the banana and yogurt in a mixie.
  • Do not add any water while grinding.


  • In a wide bowl, ad the plain flour, baking soda and jeera(i forgot to add jeera)
  • Add the ground banana puree to this and knead this into a dough. It will be slightly sticky. That’s ok.


  • Cover this and keep it aside for 4 hours. Even you can keep it overnight. Once done dust the rolling board or the kitchen platform with atta | wheat flour.


  • Take a portion of the dough and roll this into medium thick. Using a small lid cut this into even round sized pooris. You can roll it into small pooris too like how we roll normal pooris.


  • Heat the oil and when it is hot, keep the flame to medium low and fry the pooris till the turn golden brown.


  • Drain it in a kitchen towel. Mangalore buns are ready to serve.
  • I served this with spicy coconut chutney.
  1. You can use self rising flour instead of maida . In that case skip the baking soda.

  6. If the dough is too sticky while making the dough, you can add 1-2 tblsp of plain flour.
  7. You can serve this sambar too,
  8. You can add 1/2 cup of wheat and 1/2 cup of plain flour instead of full 1 cup of plain flour.
