How to make Banana Halwa

Step 1 Mash the bananas
  • To make this delectable banana halwa, peel the bananas and mash them in a large mixing dish. In a pan on medium heat, warm ghee. When the ghee is melted, add the mashed bananas and simmer on low heat until thickened, about an hour.
Step 2 Cook them
  • Stir in the mashed bananas with a small amount of ghee and cook for 15 minutes, or until the bananas are light brown in color. To prevent the bananas from sticking at the bottom of the pan, keep stirring them.
Step 3 Ready to be served
  • Place the pan over low heat for 15 minutes, or until it begins to simmer. Then add the cardamom powder and stir once again for a few seconds before removing it from the heat. Pour the halwa into a serving dish and allow it to cool at room temperature. Banana halwa is now ready to serve in thick slices.
