Morning Dessert on Eid - Banana Payasam

Those happy and holy days are over...I was very busy during Eid days because of  guests,outings, and so on....I couldn't have even a look at my space since 2-3 days.The happy thing is that we have performed an Umra(a pilgrimage to Makkah) after finishing off all our enjoyments.

Again back to the routine...Little relief is that school vacation hasn't come to an end..twenty more days are there..So Appu and me are in the vacation mood itself..But the big task is there to do..Appu's holiday home work..

Off to today's recipe...Having this dessert is a custom in my H's house on Eid day before the morning prayer..The preparation and method is just like payasam only..Ripe bananas in jaggery sauce and coconut milk give an immense sweetness to this dessert.


  1. Ripe bananas :2
  2. Ghee: 1 tbsp
  3. Jaggery cubes : 3(medium size)
  4. Cardamom powder : 1 tsp
  5. Thin coconut milk : 1 cup
  6. Thick coconut milk : 1/2 cup
  7. Rice powder : 1 tsp.
  8. Cashew nuts : 5-6
  9. Raisins : 4-5

Method :

  • Cut the bananas into small cubes.
  • Mix the rice powder with the thick coconut milk and keep aside.
  • Heat ghee in a pan and roast the cashew nuts and raisins till brown colour.Keep them aside.
  • Add the banana pieces in the same ghee and saute for some time.
  • Melt the jaggery cubes in half cup of water and allow to cool.
  • When the banana cubes turn brown add the melted jaggery and cook for some time.(the banana pieces and the jaggery mix should combine well to form a thick mix).
  • Now add the thin coconut milk and boil for 5 minutes in medium flame till the whole mix reduces to it's half.
  • Finally add the thick coconut milk mixed with rice powder,cardamom powder and combine well.
  • Slightly heat it and switch off the flame.
  • Garnish with the cashew nuts and raisins.
