raw banana kofta recipe

Navratri begins from today. I am sharing here my first recipe for Navratri. I have a few more recipes lined up. I always celebrate Navratri with a lot of zest, strength and devotion. This is one festival that is close to me for spiritual reasons.

Now moving onto the recipe, These koftas make for a nice brunch or snack. minimal spices are used in this one. What stands out is the taste and texture of raw bananas in the koftas. While the outsides are crisp, the insides have the firm and smooth texture of cooked plaintains.

Serve the banana koftas with this fasting coconut chutney, homemade tomato ketchup made without preservatives or coriander or mint chutney.
