Matoki No Chevdo | Kacha kela No Chevdo

These days, fasts consist of eating pretty much everything apart from grains and vegetables! I will be fasting too...but I will be eating mainly farali food (root vegetables, fruit and milk products).
For this years Mahashivratri I made Matoki ( Kacha kela ) no chevdo.

Check out our other Must Try Vrat Ka Khana recipes if you are keeping a fast.

You will need:-
  • 2 raw banana
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • oil to fry
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch of citric acid in powder form ( limbu na phool )
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
First in a bog bowl take cold water , add 2 tbsp salt. Peel the banana and place the banana in salty water. Now sliced them thinly ( I used mandoline ). Leave them in salty water for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile heat the oil in kadai.Take out slices and place them on a kitchen towel and pet them dry. Oil should reach to smoking point. Slowly place few of the banana slices into the kadai. Allow to become golden all over and until goes crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon. Now fry the peanuts on a medium heat and add them to the fried banana slices. add sugar, citric acid, red chilli powder and black pepper powder. Gently everything. Let it cool and enjoy !
