Add curd, cooking soda, salt and cumin seeds. Mix well and add maida to knead a smooth dough. Do not add any water, just use sufficient maida in small portions to make the dough. Knead the dough with the ghee. Keep aside for eight hours or overnight to allow it to ferment.

Keep puris immersed in oil by gently using the ladle. This way they will puff and rise up and also get cooked thoroughly. Serve the delicious banana buns along with your creamy, delicious and restaurant-style kurma.
