Banana payasam is a delicious warm dessert prepared during the Vishu and Onam festival in Kerala. It is a simple sweet kheer made with banana puree, cow milk, jaggery, ghee, coconut slices, and cashews. It is straightforward to make and a must-try dish if you have a lot of overripe bananas in stock.

Traditionally, this pazham payasam recipe is called Nendram Pazham Pradhaman that is made using nendram pazham or banana variety. The word Pazham means fruit in Tamil and Malayalam, and pradhaman denotes payasam or kheer or pudding.

Nendram pazham is popularly called Kerala banana which looks taller than regular Indian bananas. It is one of my favorite bananas and is also used in many recipes such as appam, kheer, chips, pazham pori, also known as banana pakoras or fritters.

I came to know about this banana kheer recipe from my beloved friend Rohini, who is also a food blogger at yum-tum bhojana. She lives in Arkansas with her family. I requested her to send this recipe for a guest post category on my blog.

Pazham pradhaman ingredients:


Banana – 2 (over-ripe)
Jaggery powder – 1/4 cup
Cardamom Powder – 1/4 tsp
Ginger Powder – 1/4 tsp
Boiled Milk (Cooled) – 1/2 cup or as needed
Toasted Coconut slices – 2 tbsp (optional)
Orange Food Color – a pinch (optional)
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Chopped Cashew nuts – 1 tbsp
Raisins – 1 tbsp

Notes:

1. Increase or decrease jaggery depending on the sweetness of the Banana. The amount of jaggery mentioned was perfect for our taste buds.

2. Alternatively, you can also use brown cane sugar.

3. I used store-bought coconut slices. So, I added it directly to the payasam. If you use fresh coconuts, you can chop them into small pieces and toast them in ghee until golden brown. This gives a nice bite to the payasam.

How to make banana payasam:


1. Take two bananas in a blender and make them into puree. Do not add any water to make the puree.

2. Heat ghee in a pan. Once hot, add chopped cashew nut and fry till golden brown. Remove it from the pan and keep it aside.

3. Add the pureed banana to the same pan and saute well for 5 mins until it bubbles.

4. Stir in the jaggery powder and mix well until it combines. Allow this to boil down for another 5 to 7 minutes. Make sure the jaggery is melted completely.

5. At this stage, add cardamom powder, ginger powder and give it a good mix. I have added a pinch of orange food color to enhance the color of payasam. Adding food color is totally optional. Add the fried cashew nuts, toasted coconut slices, and raisins.

6. Switch off the stove and allow it to cool. This would take around 10 to 12 mins.

7. Add the fried cashew nuts and raisins. Once it cools down, stir in milk and mix well. Payasam is ready to be served.
