Just one more bite...
My dad is always on the move. Always.
If he's not jetting around the globe, he's careening through the city-- be it for work, meetings or errands.
Sometimes you just need a break: something to make you sit back and relax.
My dad loves cooking too, he gets that same contented chortle as I do when he eats something scrumptious and I have him to thank (more like blame) for my sweet tooth.
So this weekend I made him some banana toffee. The recipe author also calls it banana halwa but halwa is a fluffy Indian dish and this really is sticky toffee.
It has some cardamom powder in it to give it an Indian taste, but if you're not accustomed to the taste of cardamom or, like me, you can't stand it, just leave it out.
You'll be left with a sweet, fresh, 'just-one-more-bite' toffee.
Brown Butter-Banana Toffee
By Tejal Rao, from Gilt Taste
Note: During step 2, parts of my mashed banana began to stick to the pan or caramelise. It was fine by me: I got to eat strings of sticky, caramelised banana. But it was tricky.
4 tablespoons butter
4 ripe bananas (about 2 cups) mashed
1/4 cup palm sugar (or white sugar)
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
