Banana Halwa or Kelyacho Halwo…
The thought of this brings water to my daughter’s and hubby’s mouth. My daughter loves to have this everyday for breakfast with a chapati. My hubby too loves this and prefers this home-made halwa to any types of ready made jams.
My mom is an excellent cook and she thought me to prepare this banana halwa. She gave me the exact quantity and this is a real fool-proof method. There is a secret to the Nendra Bananas. Ensure that they turn ripe. That is the outer skin should completely become black. You might feel that they are rotten. But they won’t, they will ripen properly and that is the best time to consume them. Off course, you should use your intelligence to judge whether they are ripe or rotten 🙂 Just ensure that there are no flies flying around them 🙂 Another method is, if you don’t want them to be extra ripe, then boil them a little more while cooking.
I celebrated my first Bloggoversary yesterday. No problem, I prepared a nice sweet dish for my blog. I have been preparing this halwa since a long time. Even the recipe was saved in my dashboard. Just that I had not clicked any pictures. I was waiting for the right time and the right type of picture. This is a very simple halwa and does not require much effort too. Just give it a try once and I am sure you will love it.
This halwa can be stored in fridge for up to 15 days. I slightly heat a sufficient quantity in microwave before serving.
