The effect of incorporation of unripe banana flour on the rheology of dough and textural characteristics of papad with respect to level of resistant starch (RS) in a rice flour papad was investigated. The rice flour was replaced with unripe banana flour with different degrees of substitutions including 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100%. The results indicated that substitution of unripe banana flour significantly affected the hardness and stickiness properties of papad dough. The papad prepared from 100% unripe banana flour indicated significant changes on the textural properties and L* (Lightness) value. The RS value also increased with the degree of substitution. The highest value of sensory score was observed for 75 : 25 rice : banana flour substitution.
