Bananas need no introduction it’s such a common household fruit.It’s eaten by all, its like a global fruit. It’s used as an age old remedy for many things.
Eating these bananas as is gives such a replenishing feel. Trying to make any dishes out of it is sure going to be a hit.
There is no end to try these in different cuisines around the world.
I always loved eating the cooked Kerala banana.It was such a tasty snack.
While i was in South America, Ecuador and Bolivia they used bananas in abundance it was a part of their everyday meal.
They served grilled bananas along with rice (though i never ate it together). The grilled flavour of the fruit is something that I can never forget. I always asked for an extra portion and relished it.
I used a tawa to fry the bananas and the taste was equally good. I make it thrice a week that’s how much i like it.
A sprinkle of cinnamon powder on these is heavenly.
One should eat it to understand the feeling 🙂
2 Ripe Banana
1 Tablespoon Honey
2 teaspoons Butter/ Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Warm Water
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
1. Heat a pan , Add 2 teaspoons of oil/butter.
2. Cut the banana into 1/4 inch slices and carefully lay it on the pan (only 1 layer)
3. On a medium flame, let it brown slightly (takes approx 4 min). Flip and cook till its slightly brown.
4. Mix honey and warm water well. Add it to the pan with bananas.
5. Switch off flame and let it caramelize for a few minutes (4-5 min)
6. Serve warm bananas with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- You can also serve warm bananas with vanilla ice cream, pudding, pancakes etc..
- Don’t use overripe bananas as it gets too soft and becomes difficult to flip.
- As you fry the sweetness of bananas increase, so too much of honey won’t be required.Taste the banana and add honey accordingly.
- Don’t try to flip when its still browning it sticks to the pan. Adding enough butter/oil will help to brown and not sticking to the pan.
