CHOCONUT BANANAS—healthy and low calorie treat

Ingredients (serves six)

Bananas — 4

Elaichi — 3 cloves

Dark chocolate (grated) — 2 cups

Almonds — 15 to 20

Cashew nuts — 10 to 15

Walnuts — 10 to 15

Pistachios (blanched and peeled) — 15 to 20

Desiccated coconut — 3 tbsp


Peel bananas and slice them into diamonds. Chill a silicon sheet. Melt chocolate in microwave at 60 per cent for two to three minutes. Meanwhile, dry roast almonds, cashew nuts and walnuts on low heat till crisp. Cool slightly and put in a mixer jar. Add pistachios to the hot pan and let them dry. Add to the rest of the nuts. Remove the chocolate from the oven and whisk till smooth. Grind the nuts coarsely and transfer into a bowl.

Add desiccated coconut and mix well. Pick up each banana piece with a fork, dip in chocolate and roll in nut-coconut mixture till well coated and place on the silicon sheet. Some pieces can be just dipped only in chocolate and kept on the sheet. You can sprinkle a little of the nut-coconut mixture over some of these. Keep in a refrigerator to set. Serve chilled.
