Spongy and succulent uttapas, with the pleasant flavour and mild sweetness of bananas! This is a delicious snack that will be loved by all, especially kids.

Like most uttapas, this one also uses a batter of rice and urad dal. But, after fermentation, the batter is fortified with mashed bananas, which not only add flavour to the uttapas but also make them softer.
