Fun fact: The scientific name for a banana is musa sapientum that translates to ‘fruit of the wise man’.
One of the most commonly available fruits in India, bananas are packed with nutritional elements. Moreover, unlike other seasonal fruits like mangoes, blueberries and apples, a dozen bananas will never burn a hole in your pocket.
There are some mind-blowing dishes made with ripened bananas, such as banana sheera, which borrows elements from kesari (sooji halwa), and is commonly made during ritualistic prayers. But bananas are also used in savoury dishes like in banana sabji, where the fruit is mashed, made into small balls, fried, and then served in a bed of gravy.
