Raw banana Fry ~Recipe Swap May 2019
This is the May challenge for recipe swap and this month I was allocated F for flavour blog written by Shalini. Shalini is a software engineer, who is currently a stay at home mum. She gets her recipe inspiration from her mother, grandmother and aunts.
Looking through Shalinis blog, I shortlisted three recipes; veg momos as I have never made momos at home and wanted to try them, mango chutne as its mango season at the moment and the raw banana roast. It was a tough decision but finally I decided to make the raw banana fry as I had friends visiting and it makes a lovely appetiser.
I followed the recipe and the only changes I made was that I added a little chopped coriander and red chillies and doubled the quantity. The recipe was delicious and I will definitely be making it again.
