Often the only way to use an overripe banana is a banana cake or it's the bin. I often heard Gujarati food using ripe banana in various dishes. I thought of adding it to my kale leaves mixture as I planned my theplas. I spoke with my gujju friend Hema and she encouraged me. Kneaded the dough with much tussle in mind. Made theplas and lovely aroma filled my kitchen! Now one more way to use the banana before it hits the bin!!! Thanks Hema for the support!
