Pazham Varatti / Pazhavaratti
Recipe Source Jay's Mom
Kerala plantains / nenthra pazham - 1 cup pulp
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Ghee - 3 tbsps
You need good quality, very ripe Kerala plantains (nenthra pazham) for this.
Peel and then cut the plantains into rounds. Put it in the cooker for 2-3 whistles or Microwave it for 2 -3 mins until soft.
Once cool, pulse it in a mixer
Measure the pulp you have got. Transfer this to a broad kadai (non-stick makes your work easier).
For every cup of pulp you have, add 1.5 cups of sugar.
Add ghee little by little at regular intervals and stir every now and then until it reaches the required consistency.
I got the fruit couple of days ago, yet it wasn't ripe, so the colour turned out more yellow. Also it didn't reach the glossy look. Maybe I will make this again.
