Bananas enjoy a special position in the Malayali kitchens. From delicious curries made with raw plantains to the crispy chips, and sweet payasam (dessert), bananas are undoubtedly one of our most favorite ingredients. Pazham nirachathu is a healthy evening snack made with not-too-ripe bananas.
This sweet snack is known by different names in various places across the state. However, those who have tasted it once will not forget the taste of it forever. It is incredibly easy to cook this dish using only a few ingredients.
