HEALTHY AND TASTY BANANA SNACK

Snacks items are the favourite item for each and every one in this world so I need not to explain its important in our life. Eating something became habit for many people and they are spending a lot of money for buying different snacks from shops. So many are interested to have fried snacks such as Onion Fritters, Banana Fritters, Banana Chips, Potato Chips and Jackfruit Chips. But we have to use healthy and homemade snacks in the evening. These types of artificial fried snacks are very harmful to our health but we can't get that much tastes from our natural snacks. Now a day many new diseases are coming day by day because of these tasty artificial snacks. So we have to give importance to homemade and natural chemical free food. If we are ready to give some time to spend for making good food we can make very tasty food from our home itself. 
I am going to share one tasty and healthy snack recipe through this article. Its main ingredients are Rice Flour and Ripe Banana. We can make it very easily with limited ingredients. I like this snack very much so I am making this in my home. It will have the flavours of Vanilla Essence and Cumin Seeds. I made it thin and it is very useful to everyone including children. This is completely healthy and natural snack.

  • Heat a frying pan and add these square pieces one by one and cook both sides well.

Tips
  • You can use any type of Banana. I used Robusta Banana to get good smell and taste.
  • Use Sugar to get sweet instead Honey but Honey helps to get healthy snack.
  • Butter is an optional ingredient so avoid it if you don't want.
  • Don't add too much Water when make dough so try to add enough Water to make perfect snack.
  • It is better to use hot otherwise it will become hard.
  • You can add Cardamom Powder instead Vanilla Essence.

I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes.
