Recipe Ingredients: oil for deep frying ½ tsp black pepper powder Rock salt(sendha namak) according to taste 5-6 raw bananas Recipe Method: Peel the bananas and put them in plenty of salted iced water for 10 mins. Slice bananas with a chip slicer into water. Keep for 10 minutes, remove out water fully. Spread out on a kitchen cloth to take off moisture. Heat up oil in a wok till smoky.

Life always gives big opportunities in the form of small hints. The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus.
And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef.
The comfort of the classroom gave way to the adulations, accolades and a host of achievements. Pankaj hosted her first cookery show - "Chef Pankaj ka Zayka" on Star Plus during Sep-Oct 2011 where she showcased her passion for cooking. The success of this daily show added another flavor to her sweet success.
