MICROWAVE BANANA HALWA

Banana halwa is our family all time favourite sweet. Before I have posted the recipe ''Fryed Banana Apple Halwa''. The another method is banana varatti which is prepared with ripe plantains. I tryed making halwa in microwave and the banana I used here is normal banana fruit. I felt this method is bit easier rather than stirring for long under stove. Do try this delightful dessert. It tastes the same as the real banana halwa prepared with ripe plantains.


INGREDIENTS.

4 Ripe Banana.

1/2 cup Sugar.

2 tbs Cardamom powder.

1/4 cup Ghee.

Few dry fruits for garnish.

METHOD.

Chop the bananas into small pieces.

In a microwavable bowl, add 2 tbs ghee and micro for 20 sec on high.

Add chopped banana and micro for 2 min. Stir in between.

Add sugar and remaining ghee cook for 15 min on high stirring in between occasionally till it turns dark brown.

At the time when it forms single mass, add cardomam powder and micro for 1 min.

Grease a plate with ghee and pour the halwa on plate and allow it cool.

Later shape them into a round small balls pressing a bit in the middle. Garnish with ur favourite dry fruits. I used roasted almonds and kishmish.

I am definitely gonna try the banana halwa, bookmarked have a quick question... if I reduce the amount of sugar and ghee, would it still form a mass in the microwave?
And how did it turn red?
Lemme know.

Suma thks for sharing the delicious banana halwa recipe. In-laws are here and they had got banana halwa along with other goodies. The halwa got over yesterday and was just wondering if I could try making it at home and get the recipe from someone. Coming from you know it has to be good.
