Cook Time : 15 Min

Total Time : 30 Min


Serves : 6
  • 2 nos ripe plantain (pazhutha ethakka)-medium - big, peeled and sliced in round shape

  • 2-4 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tbsp chopped cashew nuts(optional)

  • 3 tbsp nova ghee / butter / dalda / crisco / oil


  • Heat ghee in a wide pan
  • Add the sliced banana and stir well
  • Make sure the pieces are coated with ghee
  • Cook on low flame for 5-6 mins or till the bananas are half cooked
  • Increase the flame to medium and stir well
  • Make sure you keep an eye on the dish, after increasing the heat
  • Once the banana begins to brown, reduce the flame to low-medium
  • Add sugar and chopped cashew nuts (if using) and mix well
  • Continue cooking till the sugar almost melts and the banana is fried well
  • I prefer a dark brown colour banana with a slightly crispy texture, so I increase the cooking time accordingly
  • You can have it by itself or as a side for Upma or Puttu
  • You can also use this as a topping for pancakes / waffles / ice cream / french toast
