Bananas have long been man’s favourite fruit. How long? Well, the picture above says it all! Bananas are a great source of fiber, Vitamin C and potassium. They also contain all the eight amino acids that our body cannot produce itself. And guess what? There is a whole site dedicated to this wonderful fruit! So, go ahead and check it out.
To be honest, I am not a big fan of bananas. In my defense, I did say man’s favourite fruit – not woman’s! But again, I didn’t want to miss the first fruit at the AFAM event hosted by Maheshwari. So, here’s one of the few ways I love to eat bananas. This is a quick, easy and a tasty recipe I learnt from my aunt.
What you need:
Bananas - 2 nos.
Jeera – 1 tbsp
Red chili pwd – 1 tsp
Rock salt – 1/8 tsp or to taste
Lime juice – 1 1/2 tsp
Mint leaves or cilantro for the garnish
Dry roast the jeera (cumin) and dry grind. You could use cumin pwd bought at the store, but the fresh roasted powder is a lot more fragrant. Make sure the bananas used are not very ripe. Cut the bananas into slices. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well making sure not to mash up the bananas. You are done!
