Want to make something special for your beloved on valentine's day other than chocolate....then this is the perfect sweet :)....It's very easy to make and no complications at all.Have no hesitation i guarantee u this will make ur beloved asking for more;) .This halwa is made especially by us konkani's.


Ripe plantains-3-4 nos
sugar to sprinkle on top
cardamam pdr(optional)
oil for deep frying


Slit the banana right in the middle and cut it into 1/2" pieces.Heat oil in a deep vessel and drop the chopped banana pieces into the oil carefully.Stay a little away from the oil in case it splatters.Fry it it turns brown.Transfer it to a paper towel to drain off the excess oil and while its still warm sprinkle sugar over it.Do the same for the rest of the banana .Sprinkle sugar evenly over the banana and toss the vessel so that the sugar gets coated all over the banana.
For xtra flavour sprinkle little cardamam pdr over the halwa.
Serve warm or chilled.

Hi ranji, I think you clicked on the hyperlink "this tool" in jenndz website which tells "if you think the blogroll is too messy, you can use 'this tool' to create a pull down menu. It displays the blogroll as one line of text." I think thats what you did. Did Jendz send you the code? she might send it in two weeks. If you did not receive in two weeks from the time you applied, write back to her.
