Mangalore Mini Buns

Mangalore Mini  Buns – A delicious deep fried snack / breakfast dish !!

Makes: 9


1 cup / 200 ml maida (all purpose flour) Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity

Extra 3 tablespoon maida

4 small size well ripe banana (or 3medium size / 130 g)

2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cooking soda

4 tablespoon curd

250 ml oil (to fry buns)


Mash banana and keep aside.

Mix flour, mashed banana, sugar, salt, cooking soda and curd. Make a very soft dough without adding water ( knead only with curd ). Add extra maida if required to make a soft dough. It should be a sticky dough (softer than chapati dough). Keep aside this dough in an airtight container / Tupperware container  for 8 hours / overnight.

Heat oil in a kadai / frying pan. Reduce heat to medium and drop tablespoons ( use tablespoons which shape like ice cream scoop to get evenly round shape ) of the bun dough (4 buns at a time ) and fry till puff /  golden color  on both the sides. Please do not make like puris.

Drain and place on kitchen towel / paper towel to absorb excess oil. Please use 3 – 4 paper towel to absorb extra oil. Serve as an evening snack with Tomato sauce or coconut chutney or a plain snack with tea / coffee..
