A culinary gem from the streets of Delhi, the Banana Paratha is a delicacy that is much-loved by kids and adults alike.

As soon as you read the name Banana Paratha, you would have assumed several things, like say, a paratha with a spicy filling of raw banana! No, this recipe is completely the opposite. It is made with ripe bananas, sweetened with jaggery and laced with cardamom.

Further, it is interesting to note that the banana mix is not stuffed into the parathas but worked into the dough itself!

Take care when making the dough. Combine the banana mixture and the flour, and add water only on a need basis. Otherwise, you might end up with a loose dough that cannot be rolled easily.

Also make sure you cook the parathas with ghee, in order to get a rich and authentic taste. One thing about this recipe is that it must be relished really hot, right off the tava. It is actually quite easy to make, and will be loved by everybody.

You can also try other mouth-watering parathas like the Onion, Cheese and Pepper Parathas , and the Palak Paratha .
