    I never had banana flowers in croquette form. I’ve had it stewed with coconut milk. This is a must try. Thank you Purabi. 🙂

    These sound amazing! So many lovely flavors. Thanks for the tidbit about wearing gloves when working with banana flowers due to the high iron count.

    This is amazing, Purabi! I love bananas but have never tried its flower. I have heard that its sweetness and flavor is even better than the fruit.

    I have never dared buying banana flowers I see sometimes in Asian grocery shops… I always wondered what people do with them, but would never guess they might be a part of croquettes! They look absolutely gorgeous and I’m keeping them in mind for the time when I finally buy banana flowers. I cannot wait to see how they taste!

      Thank you so much Sissi. Banana flowers taste divine, but only if cooked in a proper way. Cooking it a bit tricky, but totally worth the experience.

    That banana flower – found everywhere all the time until the development that took away the rural areas. I love it but as said; difficult to be found now. Nice,nice; those coated and crispy cutlets are so good.

      Agnieszka, oh yes, I try to keep mostly Asian recipes, most of which are my own recipes. But this recipe is a traditional one, passed down to us from our great grandmas. Glad that you like my blog. Hugs!

    Dear Purabi,

    Delighted to read the way you have given the recipe and being a fellow Bangali and an ardent food lover, I couldn’t help but read it all with a Bangla translation forever resounding in my mind simultaneously. I’d love to share the outcome of the recipe but if that seems unfeasible, I’ll atleast write a feedback to you.
