Caramelized Mini Banana slices with Basil & Sweetened Coconut flakes!

Have you heard of heaven on earth?????? This dish of mine exactly feels like  “heaven on earth”. Growing up as a child, my “PAATI” (nana/grandma) struggled to make me and my brother to get to eat fruits!!!!!! So she used to make this dish and it would be gone in one second:) Just like that…..

Fortunately or unfortunately:) History repeats itself. So I make this yummylicious dish for my kids as a snack (and guess who shares their snack????)and they wipe the plate clean and I mean CLEAN!!! Please try this with your kids and let me know if it worked???and I PROMISE IT WILL:) You can also serve this as a dessert if you are entertaining. Add a scoop of COCONUT ICE CREAM on top and its out of the world!!!!!! Also, if you have not-so-ripe bananas this recipe will sweeten them up and is a great way to use them.

This is how I make it:

I chop up my bananas into thin mini slices and throw in a pan not too hot with a tad bit of clarified butter in it! Trust me guys, these are small cravings and my blog always screams out Moderation so a little doesnt hurt. You can also add olive oil and I add some brown sugar and let it caramelize on a low flame for about 10 minutes. You dont want to burn the sugar so keep the fame low.

And you have Heaven on a plate! I plate mine with some basil leaves and sweetened coconut flakes- Delish!!!! Enjoy!!!!

With much love ………

    I love the addition of basil. I had huckleberries and basil two weeks ago. It adds such dimension to almost any fruit.

        I wanted to drop you a line. I just watched a movie, “Today’s Special” on Netflix. It’s very similar to many of my favorite movies about food, but it reminded me of you and your cooking because it was focused primarily on Indian food. Along with all of your new recipes to try out, this is really pushing me to try new spices and flavors in my kitchen. I think you’d enjoy watching it. Also, the role of the mother is played by Madhur Jaffrey, which got me REALLY excited. If you watch it, I hope you enjoy it and report back!

        I have heard about the movie and have been wanting to see it. Now I have a strong reason to watch it so will let you know soon. Do you watch bollywood movies??
