The Banana Subzi has an awe-inspiring sweet-and-spicy flavour! Despite the unbelievable simplicity of this recipe and the super-fast procedure, the Kele ki Sabzi has a very enjoyable flavour, which will be loved by all.

It is also very convenient to prepare, because it makes use of common tempering ingredients and spice powders. Banana too is something that is available at home almost all the time.

So, when you have had a really tiring day, and wish to have something quick and homely, just toss together this lovely subzi and serve it fresh with rotis.

Let the bananas be slightly firm so that the roundels will retain their shape. If they are too ripe, the subzi will get soggy and the spice powders too will not mix properly.

Method for Kele Ki Sabzi

  1. To make the kele (banana) ki sabzi, we first have to heat oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  2. Also add asafoetida (hing) and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds. You can even add cumin seeds to this tempering. We have to wait for the mustard seeds to crack so that they release the most flavor.
  3. Now we add the bananas. Many people would think that we have to use raw bananas here but we actually use ripe bananas. You can check out the Raw Banana Subzi as well if you want. The sweet and salty subzi is a unique recipe and is very quick to make. 
  4. Now add the chilli powder for spice.
  5. Add turmeric powder to the pan.
  6. Also add coriander-cumin seeds powder for an earthy taste.
  7. Add the sugar now.
  8. Add freshly chopped coriander and salt. This subzi is perfect for jains as it does not have any root vegetables.
  9. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Mix gently as you do not want the bananas to mash and get too sticky.
  10. Serve immediately with hot rotis.
