Banana cutlet is an easy to make snack which can be served as an accompaniment for tea. It is easy to make and makes use of very few ingredients. Mom usually makes it for my kids. So this time when I was in Kerala, I asked her to make it and clicked it. Her I have used jaggery syrup but you can also use sugar if you feel that the banana is not sweet enough. Usually at home, kids don't prefer to eat bananas as such. So when it is given the shape of a cutlet, they find it more interesting and eat 4 - 5 cutlets within minutes. This cutlet can be made only using nendran banana and not using any other bananas. You won't get the texture and taste. For other kid friendly snack, check here. Now to the recipe. Hope you like it.
