Desserts: Roasted Bananas With Peanut Butter


This one's inspired from what Dr Nandita Shah serves at her workshops. It's really easy and it's addictive.

You need:

Bananas, cut in half and then split lengthwise
Roasted Peanuts, unsalted ones
Jaggery Syrup/ Dates Syrup or Maple Syrup

I'll start backwards. If you don't have maple syrup, make some jaggery syrup with jaggery and a teaspoon of water on a low flame. The jaggery will melt in to a lovely dark brown syrup. If you're too lazy for that, just buy some Lion Dates Syrup.

To make the Peanut butter
Put the roasted peanuts in a blender and let it go on for a while till you hear the sound changing. Stop to scrape the sides occasionally. The peanuts will go from powder to butter consistency in about a minute or two. Thats it!

Heat a flat pan / tawa and put the cut bananas on top. They will start to sizzle and turn brown and soft. Turn it over till both sides are nice and brown.

Put the bananas on a plate, top it with the peanut butter and drizzle some syrup on top!

You can even use Tahini instead of peanut butter. Tahini is a paste made with sesame seeds. It's available in bottles or you can make it by toasting the sesame seeds and putting it in a blender. The natural oils from the sesame will be enough to make the consistency just right.
