Banana - Jaggery Wheat Poori

Banana Jaggery Poori is a fried dish and you can have them for breakfast and as snack. 

Mangalore buns world famous and is normally prepared using maida (All purpose flour) and sugar with cooking soda.
Lets see some benefits of using coconut oil in our diet.
Coconut oil is loaded with health benefits. It is good for digestion and immunity against infections and diseases. It is good for skin care, hair care and prevents diseases like premature aging because of it antioxidant properties. It also helps to treat dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections
It helps to prevent wrinkles, dragging skin and skin dryness. It helps to reduce the protein loss in the hair and nourishes the hair. Coconut oil helps to improve the bone health. Strengthen the immune system. It is also good for healing damaged tissues and infections.
Here I have used wheat flour instead of maida and used jaggery/joni bella as we call it. You don't need to keep the dough for resting. You can prepare the poories as soon as you prepare the dough.
These sweet poories are good to take it for outings, for kids snack box and even kids parties.

Things Needed : 

Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Ghee : 1 Teaspoon
Bananas : 2 to 3
Jaggery : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Cooking Soda/Bicarbonate soda : A pinch
Curd/Yogurt : 1 Tablespoon
Salt : A pinch
Oil : To fry. : 1 Cup

Method :

1. Smash banana nicely. Add jaggery and curd. Mix all the ingredients nicely.
2. Now add wheat flour,salt and a teaspoon of ghee. Mix it nicely.

3. Add cooking soda to the dough and mix it well. Divide the dough into small portion.
4. Keep oil for frying. Let it heat.
5. Roll or pat the small portion on your pal. ( As small poories)
6. Fry them one by one on both side (Medium heat).
7. Remove it from oil and put them on the kitchen towel. (Let all the extra oil absorb by tissue).
8. Repeat the same with remaining dough.
9. Serve with a cup of coffee or tea.

Note : 

Do not add any water to the dough. The dough should be thick. Add little more wheat flour if the dough turns soft and saggy. Apply little oil to the palm and pat the dough on the palm. Adding more jaggery is optional. You can powder jaggery and then mix it with banana and curd to turn soft and nice mixture. Use of any cooking oil is optional. (Coconut, sunflower, groundnuts etc).
