Yesterday i bought long african variety of raw bananas, after frying some as chips there were some leftovers, i pressure cooked them and i wanted to prepare as podimas but none at home wanted to have them so...My DH asked me to make some crispy vadas for his snacks and i thought of making out some masal vadais or pakodas with those pressure cooked raw banana chunks which i smashed them nicely and add the rolling oats instead of dals, chopped onions, green chillies, fennel seed powder and grated ginger with curry leaves, fried them until golden brown and served along with coconut chutney, needless to say that this vadas were truly super crispy, delicious prefect evening snack to enjoy without any guilt also suits prefectly as side dish with any sort of rice dishes...None at home found the ingredients i used to make out this vadas,when i told them they were surprised to know about the addition of rolled oats....Simple, quick and easy masala vadas quiet different from our usual vadais...
2cups Cooked raw banana chunks
1/2cup Rolled oats
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1/2tsp Fennel seed powder
1/2tsp Grated ginger
Smash as fine paste the cooked raw bananas, add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, fennel seed powder, grated ginger, salt and curry leaves as thick batter, if its too thick springle few drops of water...Heat enough oil for deep frying... take a small golf ball size dough from the raw banana-oats mixture, flatten them in ur palms, drop gently in hot oil..fry them until they turns golden brown..drain the excess of oil in a paper towel..
Enjoy with chutney or as side dish with any rice dishes..
