Banana Halwa

This is an easy halwa made with kerala banana(Nenthra pazham).This is so tasty and healthy also.If we add ghee also those ghee will come out from the halwa at the last stage of cooking.Kids will love this.If we make this in 'uruli' this will get a dark brown color as I cooked in non stick vessel this has got a golden color but the taste was too good.



















Ingredients:

6big Nethrapazham
1c Sugar
1/2c Water
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
3/4 to 1 c Ghee
1/2c Chopped (cashewnuts plain or roasted in ghee)
2tbsp Maida mixed with water thinly


















Method:

1.In a non stick large vessel put the sugar and water and boil.
2.Boil till it slightly thickens.
3.Add the chopped bananas and keep on stiring.
4.Stir till all the bananas are totally cooked and fully mashed.
5.While stirring add ghee and maida mixture in small amounts.
6.Keep on stirring till the mixture thickens and seperates from the vessel.
7.At this stage add the cardamom powder and cashewnuts.
8.Mix well and stir for 2 or 3 mins more till the ghee oozes out.
9.Off the flame.
10.Now transfer this halwa to plate and smooth the top of halwa.
11.Let it cool for couple of hours.
12.After cooling cut into desired shape and serve.

This goes to Ayeesh's Iftar Moments Hijri 1432.
