FRIED APPLE BANANA HALWA

All might have heard of banana varatti and banana halwa that is done with mashed plantains or ripe banana cooked in sugar syrup. And the very tougest part for me in this is the stirring process. We have to keep on stirring the mixture till it turns dark blackish colour. Beleive me, all these efforts makes the dish delicious and perfect in taste. Deep fried banana is another method of making banana halwa that is prepared especially by us konkanie's during the occasion of Janmashtami. In this recipe i made slight changes by adding apple pieces also along with normal banana fruit and it tastes double than actual. So here it goes:



INGREDIENTS.

2 Ripe Banana.

1 Apple.

Sugar as required ( To sprinkle)

Cardamom powder as required.

1 tbs Ghee.

Oil for deep fry.

METHOD.

Cut the apples into normal small pieces. Slit the banana right from the middle and cut it into 1 or 1/2" piece.

Take a container and sprinkle some sugar at the bottom and keep aside.

Heat oil in a kadai and drop apple pieces and fry them till it becomes brown. After its done remove those fried apple and place them in the sugar sprinkled container. Sprinkle again sugar and cardamom powder on the top of it evenly.

Follow the same procedure with banana's too.
Lastly when all its done add 1 tbs of ghee and toss the container well so that the sugar,cardamom and the ghee gets evenly coated on all the fried pieces.

The halwas should be stored close for one day so that the sugar melts and form a brown syrup and it taste better.

Can't you caramelize in the Microwave, might be quicker to make. Looks wonderful though, thick and syrupy!:)

For this event, you are supposed to make sweet rotis, Obbattu, sweet parathas etc, if I am not mistaken.
