From welcoming a guest at home to a marriage ceremony, Kesari is a must for all South Indians. I remember my mom prepared kesari and bajji whenever any ladke wale came with marriage proposal for me😁😁 It is made in many fruit and plain flavours. But this Banana Kesari has not got it's share of fame. It's fairly good to taste and you can use up your over ripe bananas in this. Good to try for a change,, something different from the usual.
