Sarkara Varatti | Onasadhya Special Recipe

Ingredients :

Raw Banana / Plantains : 4
Powdered Jaggery : 1 cup
Powdered Sugar : 3 - 4 tbsp
Cardamom Powder : 1/2 tsp
Dried Ginger Powder : 1/4 to 1/2 tsp
Oil for deep frying

Method :

Wash, peel and slice the plantains into 1/4 inch thick slices and cut the slices into half. Heat oil for deep frying. Heat oil in a wide pan for deep fry the plantain chips. Fry the chips on a low flame stirring them constantly for even browning. Fry the plantain slices till they become crisp and brown color. Remove from the oil and set aside. Mix the jaggery and water in a heavy bottomed vessel. The amount of water should be just enough to soak the jaggery and make a syrup of hard ball consistency. Switch off the heat and add the deep fried chips, cardamom powder and ginger powder and mix well. Set aside for a few minutes. Then add the powdered sugar and mix very well.
