- 2 large ripe bananas sliced
- 2 tbsp sliced almonds
- Butter or Ghee 3 tbsp
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar packed
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder or to taste
In a wide iron skillet or non stick pan, melt and heat 1 tablespoon butter or ghee.
Work on low to medium heat to keep the butter from turning brown.
Add the sliced almonds and toast until golden brown. This should take no more than 3 minutes.
Reduce the heat completely and remove the toasted almonds from pan into a separate bowl.
To the same pan add ½ tablespoon of butter, slightly increase the heat to melt and warm the butter
Add the sliced bananas. Use a spatula to toss the banana slices. Try to get them to be a slightly golden color. Increase heat to medium or medium high. At this point some of the slices will start to loose their shape which is normal. Remove in a separate bowl.
In the same pan add 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of butter and heat.
Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir till well till dissolved.
Add the golden bananas to the brown sugar sauce and carefully mix to coat the the slices.
Turn up heat to medium high, stirring occasionally.
Once the mixture starts sizzling, continue to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Place some banana pudding /halva in a dessert bowl. Sprinkle with the almonds and enjoy right away.
You may also serve with a small dollop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
