How to Make Kelya Cha Halwa(Bananas In Sugar)

  • Chop the bananas into thick slices. Heat the butter in a flat bottom pan and add the cloves.
  • Let them splutter to release their flavor.
  • Then add the sliced bananas to the pan and stir well.
  • Add more butter if necessary so that the sliced banana is well coated and doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Cover the pan to allow the bananas to cook.
  • Stir occasionally.
  • Ordinary bananas will take about 2 minutes, the rajali a little longer, to be done.
  • Two minutes after the bananas have been sauteed add the sugar.
  • Ordinary bananas require a little less than 1.5 cup of sugar because they are inherently sweet.
  • Continue cooking them till the sugar dissolves and bubbles in the pan.
