Dark colored, soft, glossy looking Nendran banana halwa recipe is the last post that I had planned for this DIWALI which had to be published yesterday. But in my previous version of halwa, though the taste and texture was super fantastic, the color was not so dark, vibrant and inviting. This pulled me back from posting the recipe.
Having learnt lessons from my previous mistakes, I decided to choose over- ripe Nendran bananas for the recipe which really worked!!!! You can visualize the dark chocolate colored, shining smooth Nendran banana halwas right here….
The success of this Nendran banana halwa recipe mainly depends on kind of bananas chosen, ghee and your stamina to constantly stir for almost 40 to 45 minutes. Yes, I am very frank to say this…You need to be continuously stirring the halwa mixture with ghee till it reaches exact consistency. If your bananas are not over-ripe, then keep them covered in polythene or plastic bag for a day or so. The skin would have been turned completely black and the banana inside is still solid, that is when you can get ready to cook this overwhelmingly awesome treat. Word of caution is do not end up using rotten bananas in the process of making it overripe…
