"This is a journey of my life since I was all of 12 yrs when I started my hand in cooking to now with displays of my learning and creations of recipes from around the world. My inspiration and role model has always been my Mum who has always created dishes from around the world and excellently well. I do not believe I would ever match to her culinary skills. I remember the times she could cook and bake almost 4-5 dishes in one go without ever letting one go under cooked or burnt! I was born and raised in Dubai, UAE and recently moved to India for family reasons. Kitchenette just means that over the decades, my kitchen has changed from that of my mum's to my uncle and aunt's, to my home in UAE and now in India. Pala't'te, describes both global cuisines ('Palatte'-diverse flavours) and pleasing diverse 'Palates'."

Homemade Banana Jam - When Mummy Cooks

This is one of my mum's special jams that she made when we were in Kerala. It goes really well with toast and makes for a wonderful start to breakfast. She made this with crushed bananas. Next time I plan on trying this with banana chunks.

Mummy's Banana Jam

To make this simple jam,

You need:

  • 1 kg bananas (she used homegrown small sized bananas also known as Apple banana or Latundan banana)
  • 1/2 kg sugar
  • 1 cup of plain drinking/filtered water
  • Essence of your choice (Vanilla would be better) *Optional

To make:
Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes | Makes about 250 gms

Banana Jam with Nutella combo
1.Peel the bananas and slice thinly. Grind properly with seeds but without water.

2. In a non-stick pan, pour the grind mix with water and stir to reduce.

3. Add the sugar and stir well for about 5 minutes.

4. Set aside and once lukewarm, add essence of choice and bottle in airtight container and refrigerate.

5. Top the jam on your favourite bread and in combination with your favourite other toppings as desired. I also tried it with nutella and it was fab as banana and chocolate usually combines well.
