Banana Ghee Roast Recipe | Caramelised Banana Ghee Roast | Ghee Roasted Banana

Nenthrapazham or ethan pazham is one of the healthiest banana for growing children.  I have heard from elders in my family that it helps children with healthy weight gain. If you could find this banana in the place where you live, please give this simple recipe a try and you will thank me later. This banana ghee roast can be made in a jiffy and it can be served to kids as an after-school snack along with a glass of vella chaya(milk 😜).
Nenthrapazham/Ethan Pazham/Kerala Banana - 2 
Ghee - 2 tblsp 
Raw Sugar/Naatu Sakkarai/Jaggery - 1 tblsp 
Cashew nuts - few
1. Peel the skin of the banana and slice it into roundels(approximately 1/2 inch thickness). In a pan, pour the ghee and heat it.
2. Now add the sliced banana and roast it in medium flame for about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the sides of the banana and cook it for another 2 minutes. When it is almost cooked, sprinkle the sugar or jaggery.
3. Roast it until the sugar melts and caramelizes. Remove from the pan when it turns golden brown. (I forgot to click at this stage and hence you couldn't see the golden-brown banana slices in the below picture). Finally, roast some cashews in the remaining ghee and garnish it over the roasted bananas.
The banana roast will be mildly crisp on the outside and the inner portion will be soft. Serve the delicious banana roast with milk.
Points to remember:
  • Adjust the sugar depending upon the sweetness of the banana. 
  • The ripe and sweet banana gives the most delicious caramelised roast.
  • If you like, you can add a tablespoon of ghee roasted coconut pieces too for the extra crunch.

Warm Regards,
