  • 1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour 60 grams

    1 Big Raw Banana
  • In a Pressure cooker or Instant pot, boil the potato and raw banana.
    1 Big Raw Banana, 1 medium-size Potato
  • For the Instant pot, I pressure cooked it for 10 minutes.
  • Let it cool completely.
  • Remove the skin of the potato.
    1 medium-size Potato
  • Mash or grate the banana and potato. I like to grate instead of mashing as it gets mashed out evenly.

  • In a large bowl, add the grated banana, potato, flour, green chilli, chopped coriander and salt.
    1/2 Cup Singhara Atta, 1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour, 1 green chilli finely chopped, Pink Himalayan Salt or Sendha Namak to taste, 1-2 tablespoon Coriander finely chopped
  • Mix everything and combine it into a dough.
  • If it is too dry add a tablespoon of water at a time. It might not be needed but just in case.
  • Shape it in the form of tikkis or kebabs. I have used skewers to shape it in the form of kebabs.
  • Heat a heavy bottom cast iron pan or a non-stick pan.
  • Once hot, add a teaspoon of ghee or oil.
    1-2 tablespoon Ghee
  • Add in the kebabs and shallow fry them on both sides on low to medium.
  • Keep rotating the kebabs in between so that it cooks on all the sides.
  • Pan fry them until golden brown on all the sides.
  • Serve it chutney or dips of your choice.


  • Measurements are a rough guide.
  • Standard US size cups used.
