How to make Raw Banana Chivda Recipe

  1. To begin making Raw Banana Chivda Recipe, heat oil in a kadai on medium flame. 

  2. Wash and peel the bananas and directly grate the bananas into hot oil. Fry in batches. Peel only that much portion of banana that can be fried in one batch, to avoid the change in colour. 

  3. Let them fry on low to medium heat and keep turning until they turn golden brown and crisp. Drain on an absorbent paper and set aside.

  4. In the same frying pan, fry peanuts, cashews and almonds till they turn light golden brown. Keep aside on kitchen towel.

  5. In the same manner, fry green chillies and curry leaves. Fry till they turn crisp and all the moisture evaporates from them. Drain on kitchen towel.

  6. In the end, fry raisins. Be careful while frying raisins, as they burn quickly. Fry only for a few seconds. Combine fried grated banana, peanuts, cashews, almonds, raisins, green chillies and curry leaves in a wide bowl.

  7. Add salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala and powdered sugar to it. Mix well.

  8. Once it cools down completely, store the chivda in an airtight container.

  9. Serve Raw Banana Chivda Recipe with Masala Chai Recipe - Indian Spiced Tea or coffee during evening.
