India has many states and they have different cultures! Once you move from one state to another everything you found to be new and along with that each state has it's specialty on food which you get as a bonus. One of my husband's fried got married last year. He belongs to coastal part of Karnataka. We went Kundapur to attend his marriage. It is a beautiful place and has wide variety of regional cuisines. Chicken Ghee Roast is one of the famous dish of this place, wish to try it soon.

Recently, we have been invited by the newly wed couple. The girl prepared superb dishes and we were bowled out. She started with a famous snack, Mangalore Buns. I ate this for the first time and could not resist myself and finally ask the recipe before leaving their house.  It was in mind for quite sometime but did not getting chance to prepare it. The recipe calls for overripe bananas. Normally whenever I buy bananas there will be one or two overripe at the end. Since I decided to make this, I was fall short for overripe bananas. Then I purposely bought few overripe bananas to try this Mangalore Buns.

All Purpose Flour/ Maida - 11/2 cup + little more for dusting
Curd - 2 to 3 tablespoon
Overripe Banana - 1 big
Sugar - 6 to 7 tablespoon
Baking Soda - 1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste

1. Take over ripe banana in a blender and a make a smooth puree.
2. Later add curd and sugar and  blend once again.
3. Sieve the flour along with salt and baking soda. Add the blended mixture into it and prepare a smooth dough. Do not add any water. If the dough becomes very stick you can add little more flour in that.
4. Now cover the dough with a damp cloth and keep in room temperature. Allow to rest it for 7 to 8 hours. So if you want to prepare it for breakfast, make the dough previous night.
5. After 7 to 8 hours, knead the dough once again and divide into equal lemon size balls.
6. Take each ball dust with flour and roll out like puri but it has to be thick.
7. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry them until golden and serve hot.
