Nendrabale Kele (Banana) in Sugar Syrup ..............
Prepare sugar syrup of one thread consistency with 1 cup of sugar to which 1.5 cups of water is added. Once it comes to boil add a pinch of saffron and ½ tsp of cardamom powder, mix well, remove from heat and keep it aside.
Take 2 ripe nendrabale kele (Banana) and cut them into three equal pieces after cutting off its edges, then cut these 3 pieces vertically into 2 pieces. You will get 6 pieces of each Banana.
These bananas are usually deep fried in Ghee and then soaked in sugar syrup. But here i have Microwaved the bananas for two minutes with the skin on and then fried them with 1 tblsp of ghee on a non stick pan. I have microwaved the bananas as it will take less time to fry later on.
Heat a non stick pan with 1 tblsp of ghee, when hot peel off the skin of the banana and keep it in the pan and fry on both sides on medium heat for 5-10 minutes till 75% done.
Remove and add in to the sugar syrup. Let cool to room temperature and then keep it in the fridge.
Serve this cold or at room temperature. You can top it with a spoon of beaten cream.
