BANANA'S USED FOR MAKING HALWA
HALWA READY IN THE KADAI...
The bananas with which the halwa is made are called “mainolee kelee” These are also called the south Indian bananas that the keralites eat for breakfast.
For making the halwa the outer skin has to become black and when you peel it the body of the banana will be soft and not over ripe, you need such bananas.
3 big bananas
1 cup or less sugar
2 tbsp ghee
Cardamom powder as per taste
Little water for cooking
Slice bananas very fine
Put a little water in the kadai (about ¼ cup)
Put the slices on top i.e. they should remain flat
Put ghee on top and sugar on top too.
Let the halwa start cooking.When the bananas cook on one side they will change color from yellow to pale yellow
Turn them carefully taking care not to break them while turning
You can add more ghee if you want or add little water if you find that the bananas are sticking to the kadai
Sprinkle cardamom powder and if you like a little milk on top
Cook till it becomes soft.
