RAW BANANA BHAAJI

RAW BANANA BHAAJI

After the rich foods, sweets and other delicacies, eaten during the Diwali festival here is a simple side dish which you will enjoy.

One thing nice about this recipe is that by pressure cooking the raw bananas and then peeling it, you avoid staining your fingers, which would happen if you were to first peel and cut the raw bananas.

This Raw Banana Bhaaji is adapted from a recipe shared by my friend, Leena Muzumdar.

  • Raw Bananas, 3
  • Large Onion, chopped, 1
