I’m back with Crispy Raw Banana - Tapioca Pearls Patty for Fasting Food and the new winner for ‘Only’- Pasta, Pizza and Noodles

Finally I have managed to post after a long gap of two months. Though I managed to announce the events but I know how difficult it was.
The last two months made me realise that moving into a new city can be so difficult… though I must confess that this is my 4th transfer in the last 6 years but it was never so difficult earlier. Searching for a new house and school seemed like a herculean task and amidst all this chaos we all fell sick one by one and S suffered for 15days due to an antibiotic reaction.

We are still settling into our new home and the younger one in his new school but we do miss our old city and friends a lot. I am going to miss the winter which is going to arrive soon in my old city. I just love sleeping inside the comforter and the lazy mornings. No matter how much I hated the fog in the past, I’m going to miss it now.
Today as I type and edit the post I was hesitant initially and was wondering whether I have forgotten the basics of blogging but surely I have not…  I definitely have to see whether my blogger friends still remember me and find time to drop by and say a hello to me and obviously read my recipe too!!!
With the onset of Navaratri the fasting days have begun giving me ample opportunity to try and innovate fasting food. So wait, watch and read my innovations in the next few days.
To start with, today I’m posting a very tasty and crispy patty made with tapioca pearls (sabudana) and raw bananas. The preparation is quick to make and what I can promise is that you can not resist eating just one. The Pattie is very tasty and the spicy green peanut chutney compliments it well. On other days it can make a good snack and a perfect starter too…
Ingredients For Patty
3 large raw bananas boiled
2 medium potatoes boiled
1tsp cumin pwd.
1/2 cup mini tapioca pearls soaked
4-5tbsp roasted peanut pounded
5 green chillies finely chopped
1tsp sugar
3-4tsp bhagar flour/ sama rice flour
3-4tsp finely chopped cilantro
water as required
sendha namak/ fasting salt
oil/ ghee for frying
Boil and peel plantain and potatoes and grate them. Mix all the ingredients and add sendha namak (salt used during fasting).
The bhagar or sama rice flour adds a great texture and increases the crispiness of the patty.
If you find the dough very dry add a little water. The dough should be moist enough to be moulded into a flat patty.
Take lemon size balls, flatten them properly and smoothen the edges.
Deep fry the patty in vegetable oil or ghee on a medium flame.
Remove on kitchen towel to absorb excess oil. Serve hot with spicy peanut chutney.
For Spicy Green Peanut Chutney
1/2 cup sour curds
3-4tbsp roasted peanut
a sprig of coriander
salt to taste
Grind all the ingredients together to a smooth paste.

Sending this to my event ‘Only’- Fasting food guest hosted by Sonia (she has removed the blog now).
Also reposting Sabuna vada and Batatyacha Kees for the same.
And now the WINNER OF ‘ONLY’- PASTA, PIZZA & NOODLES, I had to pick another winner as Suvidha did not contact me and the new winner is entry no. 11, Vardhini. Congrats dear, please mail me your address in India within two days to
