Caramelized banana Sandwich with Vanilla Ice-cream

As December is already started … and party fever is already spread. My big trouble of deciding party menu is a dessert part. I am very bad in that. I regularly in search of some quick and easy desserts. This caramelized banana, I tried when I read it in one blog (sorry I don't remember the name of blog or blogger). So I modified it with stuffing with coconut & jaggery stuffing. Tastes awesome with Vanilla Ice-cream.

 
Ingredients
Banana - 4 (I used small one)

Sugar - 1/4 cup

Ghee - 1 teaspoon

Orange juice - 1 cup

Cinnamon powder - 1/2 teaspoon


For Stuffing

Grated fresh coconut - 1/2 cup

Powdered jaggery - 4 tablespoon

Cardamom Powder - 1/4 teaspoon

Vanilla Ice-cream - 2 scoop

For decoration - Chopped pistachios, almonds and walnuts (optional)



Procedure

For Stuffing
On a slow flame add 1/4 teaspoon pure ghee grated coconut and jaggery in kadai and cook it till the mixture becomes dry (stir in between). Then add Cardamom powder , mix it and remove it from flame. Allow it cool for some time.

In a nonstick pan heat sugar on low flame. Continuously stir till it melts fully and caramalised. Now add ghee, orange juice and again stir continuously. It will start boiling. Reduce it till it becomes thick like sauce.

Now slit the banana vertically. Stuff the coconut mixture into it. If you are using big banana then cut the banana into two pieces. Arrange it on a baking dish. Pour the sauce over banana. Bake it in preheated oven for 15 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. Serve banana with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and spred chopped nuts on it. (I have not used the nuts because I don't like it). You can make banana sandwich wel before the party and serve with ice-cream on the spot.
