Doodhatli Poli with Banana

4th standard kid
As a child I visited Ganagapur with family once a year. I remember clearly I was in the fourth standard when I met Anusaya Mata, a sadhavi who lived on the road to the sangam in Ganagapur. She recommended to my parents that I should observe austerity on Thursdays. This was an attempt to calm this hyperactive child. She also recommended a diet for me to follow. I was then a delicate child. Her recipe for a Chapati made with milk and eaten with banana was also a reason for me to gain weight later I realize as I look back ;)

Well anyone needing a prescription for fortifying a child's food intake can use this recipe. Plus banana is a fruit any class can afford to include in the regular diet.


1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk
salt to taste

In a large bowl, put the flour, milk, salt and a teaspoon of oil. Then knead together to get a smooth ball. Keep aside for the gluten to form for about 10-15 mins.

Now pinch of small ball and roll out the chapatis. Roast them on a girdle and puff them up on the direct gas just like a phulka. Apply more oil if you want to soften it. If you like the fresh roasted chapati without oil, go ahead and enjoy it just that way.

Place the whole peeled banana in the center, make rolls and bite in! The presentation bug demands some so you see the roll slice up and plated here.
