Raw banana Strips recipe: After a long tiring morning of sending kid to school, shopping, dusting and cleaning the house, and less cooking, I ended up packing quick lunch for my husband. By then I brought the kid back from school, made her eat lunch and put her to sleep, I was really exhausted and hungry too. It’s then I realised, that only steamed rice is left. I wanted to prepare for myself a really quick lunch and at the same time something appetizing. I made lemon rice in a minute. What do I have for the side?..as I was thinking, long strips of potato fry, more or less similar to French fries, came to my mind… But that requires parboiling…I picked raw banana and chopped them into long strip’s, added some spices and deep fried… Yes, I did it! It was quick and tasty too.. It roughly took 5-7 minutes.
