A simple and easy to make sweet when there are excess bananas available at home.

Banana - 6 nos (ripe)
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Cashews - 8 nos

Mash the bananas thoroughly (If needed can also be blended in a blender without adding water).

In a hard bottom pan add the mashed bananas, 4 tbsp of ghee and sugar and stir constantly till mixture bubbles and turns to a nice brown colour. Add the cardamom powder and mix well. Add the remaining ghee and when the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and when it is able to roll into a ball, it can be removed from flame. Spread on a ghee smeared plate and let it cool. Cut into square or diamond shaped pieces.
