Stuffed Banana Recipe

Stuffed banana or pazham nirachathu is a very popular Malabar snack. It is a part of if-tar parties. Today i am putting this recipe because this is an eid special sweet and tasty cuisine. It is prepared by stuffing the banana with coconut filling. Once i bought from the hotel but it was with white sugar. I don’t like to have sweets with white sugar, so i tried this with jaggery. I used coconut oil to fry it . But if you like to have ghee,would be much tastier than this one. Move on to the recipe.
