  • Boil the bananas for about 20 mins but keep on checking on them to avoid overcooking.
  • When the bananas have boiled, cool them in cold running water and peel them, the skin will slip right off.
  • Blend the tomatoes together with half a piece of Knorr Beef Cube.
  • Blend the nuts using the miller part of the blending machine and if you don’t have a blender, use peanut butter.
  • Fry the onions until they have caramelized, add the tomato and salt and allow to cook for a while.
  • Add Garam Masala, Turmeric, and Cayenne/Paprika depending on how much heat you like.
  • Add the blended peanut and allow it to cook for a while. Garnish with dhania and enjoy with some greens like spinach or traditional vegetables.
