Banana Halwa

This is a tasty halwa prepared from bananas. It is common that in our households, after a festival there are leftover bananas and we don’t know what to do with those bananas. In summers they get ripened fast and get spoilt. So when you have a stock of bananas at home, you can try this recipe. If you are a banana lover you will like it for sure. Ingredients are simple and always available at home.
