Walking through the weekly pasar malam or night market with my daughter I happened to spy some extra large bananas in one of the stalls. It turned out to be Nendra Bale- a special kind of banana that my Mum used to give us for a snack when we came home hungry from school and college. It’s delicious and that’s what I made for my cooking class with Vincenzo and Jessica from Spain this afternoon.
2 large very ripe bananas, about 200gms each; brown sugar
to taste; Ghee for frying.
into half, peel and quarter horizontally (Four pieces per banana). Heat a non stick pan and add 1 tbsp ghee. Place
in pan, lower heat and fry for a few minutes on both sides until golden
brown. Sprinkle with sugar and more ghee
( if desired) and serve hot.
Optional– Sprinkle with cinnamon powder or cardamom
Instead of frying, they can be steamed and eaten with ghee and brown sugar.
Honey is another option.
