Raw Banana tikki or Kache Kela ki tikki or Bhalekayi Tikki is simple and easy ,vrat recipe. This is a No Onion , No Garlic recipe .

Here I have used only few fasting ingredients which can be consumed during fasting. But if you are not fasting and making it on any other day ,you can prepare it by using onion ,garlic and chat masala for that extra zing.

For Kache Kela ki Tikki ,I have used Singhada / singhara (Water Chestnut) flour , but you can even use Kuttu ka atta (Buckwheat Flour) or other any other flour which is used in fasting.

Flour used here is just for binding . I have just tawa fried it with little Desi Ghee / Clarified Butter . But you can also deep fry it or tawa fry using oil also.

Raw Banana is rich in fiber and its great for diabetics ,weight loss and heart health. Combination of Water Chestnut Flour and raw banana is great ,keeps you energized for long.So,its mainly used during fasting. If you are not fasting ,then also you can have this at it tastes great and healthy too.

Other fasting / vrat recipes on blog are Sabudana Vada , Sabudana Khichdi  and Kaddu Halwa
