For making this raw banana fry do not peel off the banana skin completely,use a potato peeler to peel the skin. slice them thinly so they roast well and don’t take too much time to cook. Blanching in boiling water is optional as some banana varieties need more time to cook so blanching reduces the cooking time. Addition of mango powder or lemon juice is again optional but highly recommended.
