Mangalore Buns

I love Mangalore Buns.. especially whenever I have visited Mangalore, I have had them at my Friend’s in-laws place..
It is a popular breakfast and tea time snack in Udupi-Mangalore region. They are sweet, fluffy puris made using banana. The dough is left overnight to ferment.Its normally, served with a spicy coconut chutney and sambar... I have used Whole wheat flour..
2 cups Whole Wheat flour / All Purpose Flour
2 medium sized Ripe banana
2 tbsp Sugar
½ tsp Cumin powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Curd
1 tsp ghee
oil for deep frying

Take a mixing bowl, mash the bananas, now add sugar, salt,  cumin powder and curd . Mix the ingredients well into a smooth paste. Add the flour and knead the flour into a dough, add little more flour if required. The dough is slightly sticky. While kneading you can apply some ghee and knead. Keep the dough covered in a bowl overnight. Knead the dough the next morning. The dough is a bit sticky, so dust some flour and take medium sized balls from the dough and roll into round pooris. Fry each poori into medium hot oil till they are puffed and golden. Serve the buns as snacks with coconut chutney.
