Sarkara Varatiya/Upperi - Plantain fry in jagery syrup
Plantain - 3Nos (Raw)
Jagery Syrup - 3/4 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1tsp
Ginger Powder - 1 1/2 tbs
Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp
Sugar (I used brown sugar) - 1 tbs
Oil for frying
Peel the outer skin of the banana, and cut into small thick pieces. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them on low heat until they become golden brown and crispy.
Mean while make the jagery syrup. Add little water to the jagery and heat it up to make syrup, when the syrup starts becoming sticky consistency add cardamom powder, ginger powder and cumin powder and mix well and remove from fire. Now add the fried banana pieces to this and stir nicely so that he jagery gets coated well. Leave it for 2 to 3 minutes and then sprinkle sugar. When the sugar gets coated nicely, allow it to cool and sore it in an airtight container.
