  • 2 banana peels
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 burger buns
  • 2 lettuce leaves

For the marinade

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp English mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder

For the coleslaw

  • 1/2 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp English mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

For the BBQ sauce

  • 1 cup tomato ketchup
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp English mustard
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste


  • To begin, prepare the barbeque sauce. In a pan, mix together tomato ketchup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, English mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, red chilli flakes, black pepper powder, and salt. Mix well.
  • Switch on the heat, bring it to a boil, and let it simmer for a few minutes until it thickens. Remove and keep aside.
  • Wash and peel the bananas. Scrape off the white part from the peels. Shred them with a fork and cut them into 2-3 inch long pieces.
  • Transfer to a bowl. Marinate with olive oil, red chilli flakes, chilli powder, mustard paste, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin powder. Marinate for 10-15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the coleslaw. Add the shredded cabbage and carrots to a large bowl. Add in mayonnaise, red chilli flakes, English mustard, garlic powder, black pepper powder, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Mix well and keep aside to soak in the flavors.
  • Heat a pan on medium heat. Add in the marinated banana peels. Add a bit of water and cook until they are tender but not mushy. The cooking time will depend on the rawness of the peels.
  • Once cooked, add in 2 tbsp barbeque sauce. Cook on low heat for 30 seconds to a minute so that the sugar does not burn. Remove from heat and allow it to cool a bit.
  • To assemble, slice the buns into two. Butter the insides and toast them lightly.
  • Place a slice or two of the lettuce on the bottom half of the bun. Top it with the barbeque pulled banana peels. Add some cole slaw for crunch and top it with the toasted other half.
  • The BBQ Pulled Banana Peel Burger is ready to serve. Serve it with dips of your choice.
