Kach Kolar Cutlet (Raw Banana Cutlet)

                                                                       


Raw bananas (Kach Kola, we Bengalis call it 'Kach Kola') are as much in demand as ripe bananas. In fact the flower of banana as well as the stem are not behind the race. These various parts are used to make delicious vegetarian dishes. I'm sharing raw banana cutlet (Kach Kolar) for evening snacks. 


                                                                       




Ingredients:
1 1/2 Raw Banana
1 Potato (boiled)
1 Onion
1/2 "inch ginger
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
Pinch of Garam masala
2 Green chillies, chopped
1/2 tsp Coriander leaves, chopped
1 tsp Besan (Gramflour)


Method:
cut the ends of raw banana and boil with skin on in a pressure cooker with enough water. After 2-3 whistles check if they are done then de-skin it in chilled water. Mix the potato and mash it well with raw bananas together. Add all the above mentioned ingredients to incorporate the spices well with the potato-kola mixture. Take a little portion from the dough, roll into balls and slightly flatten each ball into a patty shape. Place the tikkis on the tava and on a medium flame shallow fry till they turn golden. Place on absorbent paper. Serve hot.

  33. Dear Deepa
    I like this recipe. I have eaten it some where, but never tried to make. I think I should give a break to the kachkala from Ilish machher jhol or dalna and make this one.
    Have a nice week
