Pressure Cooked Plantain/Nenthram Pazham

Living in Dubai, i have got lot of Keralite Friends. I Love their Food, so Aromatic n Delicious. One among them, is this easy recipe of Pressure-cooked Plantain/ Nethram Pazham. Many of my friends serve this as a Evening Snack for their kids and swear by the Benefits of this.

Though my kiddo was a bit hesitant to have it, i cajoled him to try it atleast, then he had half the fruit, that itself is a big success. 


1 Plantain/Nethram Pazham
1-2 tsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Ghee


  • Take Nethram Pazham/Plaintain, make 3-4 slits on top, and pressure Cook for one whistle or steam-cook for 15 minutes.
  • Once the pressure releases, Remove the Banana Skin, Cut it in two pieces.
