Kelyachi kaapa / Raw Banana Fry



Name Quantity
Raw Banana 1
Rava / Sooji / Semolina 50 gms
Mith / Namak / Salt 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon
Hing / Asafoetida 2 pinch
Halad / Haldi / Turmeric 1/4 teaspoon
Coconut oil 1/2 bowl
Water 1 big bowl


This recipe takes about 30 minutes of preparation time and server 2-3 people.


Apply some coconut oil to your hands while cutting Banana. This will avoid sap from sticking to your fingers which makes them black.

Here I have used coconut oil for frying. It gives a nice flavour but you can also use sunflower or peanut oil

Steps to make Kelyachi kaapa

  • Here I have taken 1 raw banana which is big in size it will make 10-11 kaap


  • Cut both ends of the banana and split the banana into two parts


  • Slice the skin off


  • Make lengthwise pieces or round as per your choice and put immediately in water. This avoids them from turning black.


  • After 5 minutes remove from water. Marinate with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and keep it for 2-3 minutes


  • Mix all the ingredients- semolina, chilli powder, salt, asafoetida, turmeric powder


  • Coat nicely all the pieces in semolina mixture


  • Heat the pan on medium flame add 3-4 teaspoon of coconut oil and spread it nicely


  • Arrange banana pieces in pan and again put 5-6 teaspoon oil over it


  • Cover and let it cook 2-3 minutes on medium flame
  • Check that one-side is light Brown and flip it to other side. Cook it again for 2-3 mins on Low flame without covering


  • If kaap looks dry, you can add some more oil
  • When both sides are cooked nicely remove it and kaap is ready to serve
