A traditional mildly sweetened whole wheat deep fried riped banana breakfast recipe from Mangalore so called Mangalore Buns.Very popular recipe generally made from all purpose flour and riped banana,but with a reference to my friend I changed it to whole wheat flour and gave a try for first time.

My serving makes around 10 mangalore buns

1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Big Fully Riped Banana( I used only 1/2 banana for mild sweet,may use full but the  dough becomes more sticky)
3 Tbsps of Yogurt
1/4 Tsp of Cumin seeds
3 Tbsps of Sugar
1/8 Tsp of Baking Soda
Oil for deep fry
1 Tbsp of ghee for deep fry combined with oil for more tasty buns.

First make the purée of banana in a blender without adding water
In a large mixing bowl combine all the items above including the banana purée except oil and ghee.Dont add water,knead the dough enough just like puri batter not to soft or thick.
Set aside for at least 3 to 5 hours(highly recommended)
After resting for 3-5hours, take out the dough and roll small balls with the help of rolling pin for about 2 to 3 inches of thickness to get the puffiness.For dusting can use wheat flour as well.

Deep fry them in oil combined with 1 tbsp of ghee.
Can be served with any chutney or tomato ketchup.
