I did always wonder why these buns were called buns instead of any bajji or bonda...what is in the name.. it is taste which matters was my final decision.. My neighbour S got me into this and this is her recipe which I followed to the z to  get yummy tasting Mangalore buns...All we need is some ripe bananas and maida to make this sinfully tasty dish.

I tried them this evening for snack and had to struggle and wrangle a few for the photograph. 

They are pretty good for the first time. Next time i promised myself i will give the required round shape...

Mangalore Buns


2 ripe Bananas , medium sized

2 cups of Maida / all purpose flour

salt to taste

1/2 to one spoon of soda

4 tbsp curds 

1 spoon salt and 

Oil for deep frying...


Mash the bananas completely so that there  no lumps left.. Add sugar, salt soda Mix the maida and curds to a chapati dough. use  yogurt sparingly and jusr right to get the prefect consistancy.. smear oil all over the dough, cover  and let it rest for about 4 to 5 hours.

Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan. On medium heat , make tiny ball of this risen mixture.. with oil smeared hands. It is  tricky but I used oil on a aluminum foil and flattened them out .  Deep fry both sides to a lovely brown colour. The yummy buns are ready to be served.

Enjoy as evening snack with hot tea...
