You say Potato, I say... Banana Pancake
There's more than one way to slice fruit. You could, for example, not slice it at all. Just peel it and wrap a spongey pancake around it, and call it (tada!) banana pancake. I'd argue it more closely resembles a banana burrito, but then, what's a burrito in the land of dosa, roti and naan?
Nothing so liberates the heart from homesickness like ordering a dish you know and love, and having it served a little unlike home.
So let's add this banana burrito-pancake to the list of things I'm loving about India.
