For the filling:

Mash banana and mix with grated coconut, sugar and raisins.

Final preparation:

Roll out the dough into a big & slightly thick chapati and sprinkle dry flour when making it. Cut into small rounds with a biscuit cutter or an inverted glass.

Heat oil in a frying pan. Reduce heat to medium and deep fry in batches ( 3 - 4 at a time) till golden color. Drain and place on kitchen towel to absorb extra oil. Sprinkle icing sugar on top and serve hot. Consume immediately.
