Nendra Banana Jamun

Ingredients to make Nendra Banana Jamun

  • 2 ripe Kerala or Nendra bananas
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup jaggery (unrefined cane sugar)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • Ghee/clarified butter/oil for deep frying

How to make Nendra Banana Jamun

  1. Take a deep saucepan and add the sugars.
  2. Stir in 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, stirring till all the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on medium low for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, turn off heat, add the cardamom powder, give it a good stir and keep aside.
  4. Peel the bananas and chop into long medium sized pieces or round pieces if you prefer.
  5. Heat ghee/oil for deep frying. Once hot, deep fry all the banana pieces in batches, adding about 2 to 3 pieces at a time, till golden brown.
  6. Remove and place on paper towels to remove the excess ghee.
  7. Soak the deep fried bananas in the sugar syrup for about 10 minutes.
  8. Exotic banana jamuns are ready to be served (warm or at room temperature) to your family, friends or at any party. Enjoy!!!

My Tip:

Make sure the bananas are just ripe. Overripe bananas will collapse and turn mushy on deep frying. If you prefer, use saffron strands in the syrup for extra flavor. Ghee is the perfect medium to deep fry banana jamuns, but if you are health conscious, use oil. You can shallow fry them too but to enjoy the richness of this dessert, deep frying is the best. If you are unable to get hold of this variety of banana, use regular ripe bananas (the long variety) and you can still enjoy this luscious dessert anytime!!!
