Sweet Fried Bananas
I remember these from my childhood – my grandmother used to make these every once in a while, and less frequently, my mother too. Less frequently, because they use a different type of banana called ‘Narenda-parram’ (pronounced quite differently -na-ainda-payyam or whereabouts), which aren’t widely available in North India. Much firmer than the normally available variety, these are the bananas used to make the very popular fried banana crisps/chips. They have a different flavor too.Making this is quite simple. Just peel them, slice in half lengthways and fry in clarified butter (ghee). Then sprinkle with sugar and perhaps a little powdered cinnamon and you’re set.

Children love it and so do I!
