I am not too fond of Bananas but there are a few exceptions.Like a Sharjah shake perhaps(recipe coming soon)or maybe a Chocolate Banana Cake.You wouldn't catch me eating a ripe banana off the fruit counter,that's for sure.So how about Banana which has crossed its prime,that's only good for a cake I believed.
Last week,when in-laws were here my ma-in-law decided to make this as she felt the weather here was perfect for a chilled milk-fruit based dessert.I was surprised at how easy it was made and how delicious it tasted chilled.I have made a similar version many moons ago.A friend of ours tasted this and said it was Pazha madhuram,something which was made by his grandma during his childhood days.So there.
Banana Harshaale | Pazha Madhuram
Ripe Banana - 3-4(we used Yelakki)
Milk - 3/4 cup
Milkmaid - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Cut the bananas into small bite size pieces.
Mix in the milk and the condensed milk(or sugar) and add cardamom powder.
Chill for 3-4 hours.
- Add either sugar or condensed milk(not both as we have done) as that would result in super sweet harshaale.We added more banana and milk to balance the taste.
- Make sure you chill it for at least 2 hours only then the flavors would set in.
