Ethakka Vilayichathu | Kerala Banana Snack | Easy and healthy snack

February 11, 2021


 Ethakka Vilayichathu is a Kerala snack, prepared with Kerala Banana or Nedrapazham. Apart from all it’s health benefits, the dry fruits and seeds that I have added makes it a lot more nutritious. Usually it is enjoyed as a snack, but it works as a great breakfast option. 

Recently, one of our relative from Kerala sent us a big batch of Nedra banana. Preparing this for breakfast seemed to be good option as it took very less time to prepare and all the health benefits that you get. We enjoyed it and I hope you too will try and let me know your feedback in the comments below. 

Here’s the step by step photos for preparing Ethakka Vilayichathu:

1. Cut the bananas into chunks of your choice. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of ghee. Sauté it till the bananas are caramelised. Transfer it to a plate.

2. In the same pan, add ghee again and all the dry nuts and seeds. Fry them till golden brown. 

3. Add cardamom powder, caramelised bananas, jaggery syrup and a pinch of salt. Combine everything well and it’s ready to serve hot or cold.
