Roasted Sweet Plantains

I love the taste of ripe plantain or nendrapazham as they are called at our place. Other than eating them as is, they can be steam cooked as well (mom makes this – I am yet to cook them). However, this time I tried roasted plantains with honey! They were really delish though easy to make.





Ripe but firm plantain: 1

Ghee: a few drops

Honey: to drizzle over – about a teaspoon



  1. Peel and slice the plantain into ½ inch thick slices.
  2. Heat a skillet/griddle (tawa). When well heated, reduce the heat to low.
  3. Place the plantain slices and dot a few drops of ghee to roast them.
  4. Cook both sides till they are lightly browned. Turn off the heat and let them rest for a minute.
  5. Transfer to a plate. Drizzle honey over and enjoy! I had it with vanilla icecream … was amazingly delish!!

  5. I wish you had posted this 2 weeks back, I was wondering what to do with the ripe plantains. I’m not a big fan of this fruit, but my husband likes it and he too got bored of eating it just like that. Now I know what to do the next time I get this fruit.

    From skribles: Thanks Madhuram – Hope u try and like it 🙂
