How about some Banana Jamoon for festivities? Yes, jamoon from banana. Nendra bale / banana is the sole ingredient used to make delicious jamoon.
Nendra Bale has its origin from Kerala. Kerala banana chips, of which we all are fond of, are made from these variants. South Canara folks have lovingly embraced this fruit for its unique flavour. A dark brown, almost black in colour- flavourful Halwa is made from the banana.
Another sweet is the jamoon I made. it is so simple that you immediately want to try it.Get some Nendra banana, slice it, fry it, soak it in sugar syrup. See, S-I-M-P-L-E. You need to find a ripe banana. Ripe does not mean its all soft, it still needs to be slightly firm; else the slices wont be able to hold its shape while frying. If you ask me why only nendra banana I dont have an answer. I tasted the jamoon from this variant and never seen anybody make it with other variant,neither have I tried. But if you dare make an attempt, let me know in comment how did it turn out.
So, on this Sankrathi/Pongal/Lohri/Bihu day try this simple recipe. Let this harvest season fill your life with happiness and prosperity.
