Fried Bananas

I’ve been trying to remember the taste and texture of a fried bananas dish I once had as a child. There was something odd about the bananas when they were served. They had a hard exterior, I think, which because it was solid had the effect of continuing to cook the bananas, so by the time one bit into one, they were literally melting. They were hot! Not spicey, I mean really hot temperatured. Very delicious too.

This looks like the recipe I remember. Found at the Hare Krsna website, of all places.

Banana in Caramel Sauce
Butter – 1/8 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Bananas – 4 peeled
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of 1 lime

In a heavy bottomed frying pan add the sugar and butter and juice of lime and cook till a golden caramel syrup is obtained. Add the bananas with the orange juice and coat the bananas with the sauce. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes till a little hot and slightly soft. Offer with fresh cream.

This recipe also looks nice, but I don’t remember the bananas being breaded.
