Stuffed Banana - Pazham Nirachathu

Stuffed Banana - Pazham Nirachathu Recipe


Things needed :
Bananas 2
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup

For the filling:
5 - Cashew nuts
2 - Cardamom
2 - Eggs
1 sp -sugar
10 -dry grapes
ghee, oil

Preparation method :
For the filling : Beat well egg , sugar & cardamom crushed & keep aside.

Heat a spoon Ghee in a nonstick pan .
Fry the dry grapes in it till it becomes balloon like. Take it n keep aside .

Add the egg mixture to it & make fine egg scrambles by breaking the thick egg pieces using the back of the spoon.

Next add the crushed nuts & fry till very slight brown. (I added nuts in the last because it will be tougher to remove nuts from pan when its crushed to small.) . Mix in fried dry grapes as well to this. Filling is ready.

I have used the same filling for other recipe , you can for some pics of the filling.

Slit the Banana into halves.

Remove the center with black seed with a small
knife , like in the picture.

Fill the filling.

Close the sides with a thick paste of flour.

Add enough Ghee or vegetable oil in a nonstick frying pan.
Fry turning over sides until your desired texture. Some people used to fry it only till smooth. I fried till little bit crispy.

Enjoy this classic snack of kerala with a cup of cardamom tea !
