Banana Salad (Panja Amirtham)  

Monday, March 2, 2009

Panja (five) Amirtham (a dish eaten by Angels, atleast believed so in Tamil Nadu) is prepared with banana as a main ingredient with five other tasty ingredients and devoted to God during special occasions as a dessert. They refer any dish in extraordinary taste as Amirtham and I guess this simple dessert was named Amirtham with a good reason. :)


Bananas (big)- 2 or 3
Sugar or Jaggery - 3 tsp (I used sugar, both are equally good in taste)
Grated Coconut - 2 tsp
Cut Dates - 2 (optional)
Honey - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cardamom powder - a pinch


1. Chop the bananas into thin slices.

2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients along with chopped bananas.

3. Panjaamirtham can be served as a dessert or as an evening snack.
