Ethapazham Varattiyathu



Ethapazham Varattiyathu



Firm ripe banana / ethapazham / nenthrapazham  – 1 large, peeled and cut into 1 inch rounds

Ghee – 1 tsp

Water – 1/2 cup or as required


Combine the ripe banana pieces, water and ghee in a deep pan / cheena chatti. Cook covered at medium heat, stirring in between, until the water completely evaporates and the banana pieces are done. It wont take more than 10 – 12 minutes. Check in between and sprinkle more water if required. Serve with idiyappam, puttu, upma, aval or as it is!


You can sprinkle a little sugar, if the ripe banana is not sweet enough for your taste.
