Banana Sweetmeat Recipe

Banana Sweetmeat Recipe

Ingredients : (makes about 24 pieces)

5 ripe bananas, peeled and cut into small pieces

2 tablespoons ghee

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/4 cups water

1/4 teaspoon rose essence

1/2 teaspoon cardamom, ground


Method :

Using a heavy frying pan, add the ghee and fry the bananas for about 5 minutes or until they are soft, stirring frequently. Do not let them brown. Remove the pan from the heat and mash the bananas. Add a quarter cup of water to the bananas and cook by stirring over low heat for about 3 minutes. Add the remaining water and the sugar. Stir constantly until the sugar melts over medium heat. Continue to cook and stir for about 20 minutes until the mixture thickens.


Remove from the heat and sprinkle in the spices and flavoring. Add into a buttered dish. When the sweetmeat is cool, cut it into small squares and serve warm or cold.
