I thought of skipping this month’s Indian Cooking Challenge. But when I saw its Karnataka special, I couldn’t skip it. I don’t if I have mentioned this in my blog before, I am a kannadiga born and bought up in Tamil Nadu. My great-grandfather moved to TN and we got settled here. My grandma and aunt used to write Kannada and asked me to learn too. But I was already learning Hindi and Tamil and was not ready at that time to add third one. Just learnt the basic but now totally forgot. I speak kannada with strong Tamil accent. We follow both (Tamil and Kannada) customs and that’s a big advantage for me :-) Lots of food and savories to relish.
This month recipe is Mangalore buns or pooris. You can read about this challenge here. Basically you will be given with the recipe and its source and you need to try to post it on 15th of the month. So obviously this is not my recipe and the recipe source is here.
To put in simple ways Mangalore pooris are sweet pooris with mashed banana and sugar. Interesting huh??
I never thought this combo cumin seeds, curd and banana puree will go together this well. It turned out really good. We really liked the mild sweetness and the texture inside.
