8 ripe bananas , chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup ghee
1 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder

  1. In a thick bottomed Uruli or a non-stick kadai, add the sugar and ½ cup of water and heat until the sugar completely melts [you don’t need a sugar syrup, just heat it until no granules are seen].
  2. Add the chopped bananas into it and stir well.
  3. Simmer the heat to the lowest and stir once in a while adding 1 to 2 tbsp of ghee as it starts browning.
  4. Once the halwa becomes golden brown and starts leaving the sides of the pan [approximately after 40 minutes] add the cardamom powder.
  5. If you are using a uruli, at this stage the ghee would start separating from the halwa.
  6. Pour the halwa into a greased stainless steel plate and level it with the back of a spoon or spatula.
  7. Let it cool completely and then cut into shapes of your choice.
