Author Mukta Tikekar


  • 1 cup mashed banana just a wee bit more ripe not dehydrated
  • 1 cup sooji Semolina
  • 1 cup grated fresh coconut
  • 1 cup grated jaggery Use chickki gud as it is easier to mix
  • 2-3 cardamom seeds powdered
  • Oil or ghee clarified butter for deep frying


  • Take mashed bananas in a bowl.
  • Add coconut, grated jaggery, sooji, and powdered cadomoms, and then mix the mixture properly.
  • Make lemon-sized balls of the mixture.
  • Heat a kadai and after it is hot add oil or ghee. (DO NOT use olive oil for deep frying here.)
  • Deep-fry the banana roundies till they are dark brown in color so that they get cooked properly from inside.


If you do not want to deep-fry the banana roundies, you can make them using a non-stick appam pan as follows:
Brush some oil or ghee on the individual sections of the pan.
Add the mixture in each section and then keep the pan on the gas burner.
After one side of the roundies is properly cooked, flip them to cook the other side. (The non-deep-fried ones taste yummy as well.)
