I had forgotten about buns for a long time. Then I made it last week and again today morning. Buns resemble puris, are very fluffy, a little sweet and is very easy to prepare for breakfast/evening snacks…..Just prepare the dough in the night, allow it to ferment overnight and make puris out of it in the morning. I made ginger chutney to go with it and I shall write about it in a separate post.


  • 2 Bananas ( pachhbaLe, the ones shown in the picture )
  • Curd - 3/4th cup
  • Maida about a quarter kg
  • Sugar - 4 tablespoos
  • A pinch of salt
  • Baking soda
  • Oil for frying


  • Blend bananas, sugar, salt and baking soda in a mixer (do not add water)
  • Add curds to this mix.
  • Now add as much maida as it can hold and make a dough out of this (the dough must not be soft, no water must be added)
  • Leave overnight and in the morning make small puris out of it.


  • The buns must be deep fried on a very low flame till it gets the reddish brown colour. Preparation time: 20 minutes + Leave overnight Cooking time: 2 minutes
