Kele ki Halwa/Banana Pudding (Indian style) & Burning Effigy of RavanaPosted: October 20, 2010
I wanted to try something simple and lite as the coming few days are going to be lined with festivals; with more sweets…… In India, we make all kinds of halwa and I’ve never tried or tasted banana halwa before. So I came up with my own recipe on how to make one…
Banana halwa has of course a strong banana flavour and it’s got a nice nutty and crunchy taste because of the nuts and coconut…..
Beware….it is for those who don’t mind bananas in any form 🙂
4 big ripe bananas
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2tbs butter or ghee
1 cup grated coconut
1/2 cup cashews and raisins mixed
walnuts and sesame for seasoning
Mash the bananas. Cook the mashed bananas with milk, until the milk dries up.Add butter/ghee and stir continuously. Allow it to cook for 10 minutes on low flame.Add sugar, grated coconut and dry fruits. Allow the sugar to melt and cook for about 5 minutes and turn off the stove.
Grease the plate with butter/ghee and pour the prepared mixture.Pour it evenly and season it with sesame and walnuts. Allow it to set for 4-5 hours or overnight.
Carefully cut into square pieces of desired size or spoon it into a serving dish and serve cold.
