Banana Puri with Kala Chana gravy recipe

Banana Puri with Kala Chana gravy Banana Puri with Kala Chana gravy recipe,  a perfect dish for holiday, occasions or festivals. Banana puri has a lavish flavor of banana and adding curd gives it a soft and bit tangy texture too. These puris are easy and very simple to make. Knead the dough with banana and curd puree same way we do with normal puri dough instead of water we have used banana puree.

I am serving this yummy puri with the authentic Punjabi Kala chana gravy. As it is been said that banana puri is Mangalore dish. So this dish is the best combination of Mangalore and Punjab 😀

Kala chana is a very famous dish from Punjab and making it spicy is the demand of this combination as banana puris a bit sweet in taste. So I tried an experiment combination of a Sweet bun and Spicy gravy. It is a complete package for lunch. It is heavy and full filing so you and your family can enjoy it during lunch on any occasions.

 

So ready to ride the experimental world of mine? Yes… then follow the very simple steps with wonderful pictures below and do comment how was the experience 😀
