|Bananas Fried In Ghee|
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.
Cut bananas 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.
Instead of frying, they can be steamed and eaten with ghee and brown sugar.
Honey is another option.
