Kyane Polo (Banana Dosa)

Kyane Polo is a simple, sweet dosa. I got this recipe from a FB group. I was very much impressed by the recipe and noted it immediately. I made the batter on the same day as I had two ripe bananas lying untouched. I liked the taste of the dosa. It has a mild flavor, induced by the banana. This dosa doesn't require fermentation as such. People like me (having a sweet tooth) will surely like this. This dosa can also be served as an evening snack for kids (after they come back from school).


  • Rice- 1 cup
  • Ripe Banana, big sized- 1
  • Flattened rice (Poha)- 1/2 cup
  • Grated Coconut, Fresh/ Frozen- 1/4 cup
  • Jaggery*- To taste
  • Salt- 1/4 tsp
*I used two big pieces (nearly 1/4 cup) of jaggery. Vary it according to how sweet you want or you can totally omit it.


Wash and soak the rice for 2-3 hours. Few minutes before grinding, add few tablespoons of water to flattened rice (to soften it). Now strain the water in which the rice was soaked. Then grind the soaked rice along with banana, flattened rice, coconut, jaggery and salt, to get a fine paste. Add little water while grinding. The final consistency of the batter should be medium thick. Allow the batter to stand for 4 hours.

Now heat a griddle and pour a ladel full of batter. Spread the batter as much as you like. Then close it with a lid.

Once the dosa looks cooked, flip it the other side. Let it turn golden brown on both the sides.

Then transfer it to a plate. Kyane Polo is ready!!

Serve it hot along with generous amount of ghee. Above measurement serves three people.


  1. Delicious! They look so well made.

  2. I tryed out this receipe but didn't turn out well. Not sure what went wrong. The battar was thin.
    I used 4 small babanas,1 cup rice, 1/2 cup poha, little cocunut and Jaggary and salt . I kept this battar overnight outside.

    1. Hi Prachi ,
      I am sorry that the dosa didn't turn out good. I think it over fermented. I have mentioned it to ferment only for 4 hours. Reduce the amount of banana too. Hope this helps.
