The delicious banana Nuggets is the perfect cheesy tea time snack to munch while sipping your tea in leisure evenings. Whether it is ripe or raw, banana recipes have been part of our culinary world for a really long time. I am simply in love with South Indian raw banana fry and raw banana cutlets.
Though the ripe banana is mostly used in desserts, green banana is used for making some great luscious meals. These can either be steamed, stir-fried, boiled, mashed or deep fried for making kofta, kebab, curries or the famous raw-banana chips.

You can also serve them with good old ketchup or green chutney. You can always make a double or triple batch and freeze them. They are much better than frozen snacks that you buy from the market.
