ശർക്കര വരട്ടി (jaggery coated banana). New Style.

I visited my cousin yesterday and saw this innovation to Sharkara varatty.

Sharkara varatty is a must item for onam celebrations.

Now it’s being packaged and made readily available at shop shelves.

Usually raw bananas are cut into a typical size and fried in melted jaggery to give it a sweet coating.

Here sun dried ripe bananas slices are used. Ripe bananas are cut lengthwise into four, after removing the skin and dried in sun for a few days. This can be just preserved for over a year.

I had dried bananas available and decided to make the new version.

The dried ripe bananas are cut into squares and fried again in melting jaggery. Once the jaggery thickens, remove from fire and spread out for drying so that they will not stick together.

This sweeter version can be named ‘ ഏത്തക്ക പഴം വരട്ടി’. (Ethakka Pazham Varatty).

Note: Kerala bananas are used.

Health hint: use palm jaggery.
