Braided Banana Bread

There were over 6-8 overripe banana lying in the pantry and i have been making the regular chilas (indian crepes) and pooris (similar to mangalorean buns) with them. I was looking for some new ideas to use the bananas. Since i do not have a deep bread mould, I decided to make this braided bread. To my surprise, it turned amazing in first attempt.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 banana – overripe and mashed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds powder mixed in 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup whey/curd
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1tbsp cinnamon powder
  • oil for greasing the tray

Process

  • Mix banana, flour, baking powder, the flax-seeds mixture, butter
  • Now with little whey, form a soft dough
  • Leave it overnight to ferment in a warm place
  • In the morning, kneed the dough with some flour and form a roll and cut three stripes
  • Braid them and place it in a baking tray and leave for another hour before baking
  • Before baking, spread some milk and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 mins at 170 degrees
