Nandarbale Kela Thalolo Halwo - Konkani Sweet

Happy Diwali 

This is one of the easiest of halwa i have ever tried. This is a Konkani Dessert, made with the Kerala Plantain. The banana should be ripe , so that it is sweet and soft. We in Kerala , prepare this and called it pazham vaattiyathu. We cut the banana long into halves and shallow fry in ghee or oil. Finally sprinkle some sugar on it. When i saw this on tv, i bookmarked it.

  1. Kerala Plantain(Ripe) - 2
  2. Sugar - 4 - 5 Tbsp
  3. Cardamom powder -2 Tsp
  4. Ghee - 2 Tbsp
  5. Oil - for deep frying
  6. Pistachios  chopped- 1 Tbsp
  • Peel and cut the bananas into small cubes. 
  • Heat oil in a deep bottom pan, and deep fry the cubed bananas till they are golden brown.
  • Remove from oil, drain and transfer to a bowl.
  • In a serving bowl, sprinkle some sugar and cardamom powder. Now place the first batch of fried bananas.
  • Repeat the step, until all the bananas are fried and layered like this.
  • Sprinkle some ghee and chopped pistachios on top and serve hot.
  • This halwa is best served and eaten when hot. Because as it cools down, the sugar syrup melts down out of halwa and banana pieces will become hard and  sticky
