  • 1 / 4 cup Jaggery more if needed

  • Melt the jaggery and remove impurities. Then add little more water and add the chopped banana pieces to it. Bring to a boil and mash well.
  • Once the banana is cooked soft, add grated coconut, ghee and cardamom powder, combine everything well. Turn off the heat. Allow to cool.
  • Add wheat flour to the pan and mix well. Knead till you get a soft chapathi dough. I used around 1 1 / 4 cup wheat flour. Grease with ghee and keep it covered for an hour.
  • When you are ready to rool, knead again and pinch out balls.
  • Dust with flour and roll out into a 6 inch discs.
  • Heat the tawa on medium low heat.
  • When the tawa is hot, transfer the flatbread and cook on both sides, finally apply ghee and repeat with rest of the dough.
