Recipe Credits : Debasish Bhattacharya . #sikandalouscuisine
When I read the recipe driving back from Jaipur this afternoon I was super excited at the thought of making a chutney using what we normally feed to our cows at home - Banana Peels ! I also was missing my kitchen , not having cooked for two days . I called home in advance , got the raw bananas and when I returned a few hours ago , got cooking this awesome chutney - Go for it guys , it's fabulous. The only change I made was to add some raw Mustard Oil after taking the chutney off the fire- gave that nice kick !
This is categorized in Bangla kitchen as “Phela Chhorar Ranna” meaning, dish made with vegetable discards, such as peels, seeds, pith, etc. ‘Khosa’ is peel, here it is the peel of raw banana.KNachkolar Khosa Bata (Ground Raw Banana Peel) is very simple to make but taste-wise it is awesome. If you are not fussy about the colour of the dish I guarantee you that you will be all in praise after having it.
