Banana Buns ( Mangalorean style )
Bite into one of these soft delicious fluffy buns, your world will be transformed in an instant taking you back to those days, where you would eat them wrapped in newspaper, still warm on a rainy day amidst friends & laughter.Yes, these are the famous Mangalore Buns, made specifically in the coastal town of Mangalore in the south Indian state of Karnataka.Why they are called Buns, when they are not baked but deeply fried in oil, is still a mystery, yet when you talk about them in this coastal town everybody gets it.One could have them as an evening snack or as morning breakfast, either way it never fails to satisfy you….. and with a cup of coffee, seals the deal .
It has started snowing again , but the overripe bananas simply stare from the fruit bowl, so I decided to indulge in these sweet Banana buns which unlike the name are deep fried & not baked, yet could warm your belly on a cold wintery day.It is a sure hit with kids, another big plus! one can eat it with coconut chutney ( the traditional approach) or just by themselves…either way they are a satisfying snack. Enjoy snacking !
