Ethapazham Varattiyathu / Ghee Roasted Banana

Ghee Roasted Bananas is a very simple dish which we can have as an evening snack, an appetizer or as a breakfast dish. It’s very popular in our place and both adults and kids can relish it. It’s my hubby’s favourite appetizer. So I have deliberately overdone it as he likes it that way.

My recipe Notes on Ghee Roasted Banana:

1. Use only ripe bananas to get the real taste.
