This is a totally new journey for me from now on. It’s been my dreams to have a page of my own wherein I can post my recipes, my experiences in kitchen, journey of life etc...
So here is the new beginning with a treat for sweet tooth :)
Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 30-40 min
Makes about: 20 pieces
Shelf Life: 1 week 3 weeks refrigerated
Difficulty Level: Medium
2 cups of mashed Banana (Nendra/Elakki)
2.5 cups Sugar
1/ 4 cup Ghee
1/ 4 cup Dry Fruits (cashews, raisins, almonds)
1/ 2 -1 tsp. Cardamom powder
I used the regular fully ripped bananas for the Halwa. Mash the bananas in a blender into a smooth paste and keep it aside take a microwave safe bowl and put the mashed banana into it.
Put the microwave in HIGH and let the banana cook for about 10 minutes to remove that raw smell. Keep string the mixture every 5 minutes.
Add the required sugar and mix well and then keep it for another 10 minutes in HIGH with every 5 minutes stirring.
Add the ghee, cardamom powder and the almonds and cashews mix well and keep it for 25 minutes. Now stirring frequency becomes more i.e. every 3 minutes for a better result. Once this is over let the Halwa be in the microwave for about 5 minutes to set put the Halwa in a greased plate and cut into desired shapes
