  1. Pressure cook the Raw Bananas and Potato for up to three whistles. Mash the Bananas while it is still hot. Add the green peas and all the above ingredients (except bread crumbs powder) and mix well.
  2. Lastly add corn flour and mix.
  3. Make patties/cutlets with the mixture.
  4. Apply very little water on both sides of the cutlet and roll it in the bread crumbs powder (As the cutlet is slightly wet, bread crumbs will stick to it).
  5. Continue the same procedure with rest of the patties/cutlets.
  6. Pan fry the cutlets using little oil, until cutlets turn golden brown.
