I came across Raw Banana Flour at my upmarket grocer's. I grabbed it and grazed on the net for recipes. I was excited to learn that I could bake a cake with it, exactly the way I use wholewheat flour. The only difference is that it is denser, so half a cup works like almost one cup of wholewheat flour. With Diwali around the corner, I jazzed it up with a little chocolate icing.

Raw Banana Flour – ½ cup
Cocoa Powder – ½ cup
Jaggery powder – 1 cup
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Baking soda – ½ tsp
Eggs – 2
Butter (melted) –1 tbsp
Curds (sour) – 3/4 cup or more
Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp

Mix the dry ingredients well
Beat the eggs well and add to the dry mixture
Add curds, essence and melted butter to it
Mix. Add more curds if required
Bake in a preheated oven (170 degrees) for 35 to 45 mins till a knife inserted into it comes out clean
Let it cool in the oven 

Chocolate Icing
Melt a piece of cooking chocolate with little water in a microwave
It should be of a drizzling consistency
You can pour it over the cake or make some design with it
