Indian Yellow Banana Halwa

Indian Yellow Banana Halwa

Indian Yellow Banana, known for its natural sweetness and rich texture, is perfect for desserts. This Indian Yellow Banana Halwa is a luscious and aromatic dish, showcasing the versatility of this fruit in Indian cuisine. Ideal for those who wish to delve a bit deeper into Indian cooking, this recipe is moderately easy but incredibly rewarding.

Ingredients:

  • Indian Yellow Bananas - 4, ripe
  • Ghee (Clarified Butter) - ¼ cup
  • Sugar - ½ cup (adjust according to sweetness of bananas)
  • Cardamom Powder - ½ tsp
  • Cashews - 10, chopped
  • Raisins - 10
  • Saffron Strands - a few, soaked in 1 tbsp warm milk (optional)

Instructions:

Preparation:

  • Bananas: Peel and mash the bananas. Ensure there are no lumps. Cooking Process:
  • Fry Nuts and Raisins: In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat 1 tablespoon of ghee. Fry the cashews and  raisins until golden. Remove and set aside.
  • Cook Bananas: In the same pan, add the mashed bananas. Cook on medium heat, stirring continuously to prevent sticking.
  • Add Sugar and Spices: Once the bananas change colour slightly, add sugar and cardamom powder. Continue cooking and stirring.
  • Ghee: Gradually add the remaining ghee in intervals. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Saffron: If using, add the saffron soaked in milk for a beautiful colour and aroma.
  • Finishing Touches: Add the fried cashews and raisins to the halwa. Mix well.

Serving Suggestion:

  • Serve the halwa warm or at room temperature. It can be garnished with more nuts if desired.

Tips:

  • Consistency: The key to a good halwa is in stirring continuously to get a smooth, non-sticky consistency.
  • Ghee: Don't rush adding the ghee. It should be incorporated slowly as the halwa cooks.
  • Ripe Bananas: Make sure the bananas are ripe enough, as this contributes to the natural sweetness and flavour of the halwa.
