Banana 8 ripened,chopped [Nendrapazham]

Sugar 1 ½ cups

Water ½ cup

Ghee 1 cup

Cardamom powder 1 teaspoon


  • In a thick bottomed Uruli or a non-stick kadai add the sugar and water and heat until the sugar completely melts .
  • Add the chopped bananas into it and give a good stir.
  • Simmer the heat to the lowest and stir once in a while adding 1-2 tbsps of ghee as it starts browning.
  • Once the halwa becomes golden brown and starts leaving the sides of the pan[approximately after 40 minutes] add the cardamom powder.
  • If you are using a uruli,at this stage the ghee would start separating from the halwa.
  • Pour the halwa into a greased stainless steel plate and level it with the back of a spoon or spatula.
  • Let it cool completely and then cut into shapes of your choice.
