Powdered nuts of your choice (almonds, pistachios, cashew)
Cut the ends of the red bananas.
Steam them either in microwave for 7 mins, or boil to one whistle in a cooker.
Remove the peel and place on a plate/ in a bowl.
Garnish them with fresh grated coconut & cardamom powder.
You can also add fresh nut powder. Filling & an apt breakfast substitute.
Notes from BitebyByte:
If you are ready for a cheat day, you may fork the bananas a little after steaming. Drizzle in warm ghee along with powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Let it rest for a couple of minutes for the bananas to absorb the flavours. Now you can go ahead and add the grated coconut and nut powder, and serve warm.
