Mangalore buns with step by step pictures and video.

Mangalore buns is nothing but banana poori which is deep fried. It is made by making a dough with mashed banana, flour and spice,  which is given some resting hours. After it is rolled into small poori's and deep fried. With the addition of banana these pooris are super soft and delicious. Do give a try and i'm sure you will fall in love with it.  An over-riped banana can also be used for it. An authentic recipe uses refined flour(maida) but here I have used a mix if maida and atta.
