Brown Sugar Cinnamon Plantains

What’s Cooking? by P.S. Lakshmi Rao


1 Very ripe plantain

1 Tablespoon butter

1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar

½ Teaspoon ground cinnamon


Peel plantain and cut diagonally into ¼ inch thick pieces. Heat a non-stick griddle on medium heat. Spread the butter on the pan and place banana pieces in the pan.  Roast them uncovered on both sides until very light brown.

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Pack half a teaspoon brown sugar mixture on top of each banana piece and let it cook on low heat for a minute or until the sugar starts to melt.  Make sure the banana pieces do not burn on the bottom.

Makes 15 pieces depending the size of the plantain.

Serve with ice cream or eat them plain.

I would like to thank Mrs. Subha Thrivikraman for sharing this delicious recipe from Kerala.
