This is an easy and delicious dish from the Malabar area, North of Kerala. I’ve had this from my friends’ and neighbor's place, usually during the Ramadan days.
This is a very easy one to prepare, especially when you have unexpected guests. A good combination with evening tea….
Kids will love this and this special cake with high protein is an easy one for the parents too.
Ripe plantains -- 2 medium
Extra large eggs -- 6 large
Sugar -- 12 tbsp
Cardamom -- 4-5 crushed
Ghee -- 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts -- 10-12 crushed
Cut the plantain lengthwise into four pieces. Slice the pieces into medium thin slices.
Heat a saucepan,add ghee and plantains and saute on medium heat until the plantains get cooked and turn slightly golden in colour. Keep aside. Fry the broken cashews and keep aside.
Meanwhile in another dish, break eggs, add sugar and cardamom powder to it and beat lightly for a couple of minutes.
Add the cooked plantains and fried cashews in the egg and sugar mixture and stir well until uniformly distributed. Pour it back to the same pan.
Cover and Cook it over very low flame until the top part is set.It should take 10-20 minutes depending on the saucepan used.
Carefully transfer this to a plate and cut into small squares and serve with tea.
