Hi Friends! Love Banana? That too grilled! I must tell you the grilling brings a crust on the surface of the banana and an awesome crunchy texture to it. I have used Honey glaze here. This recipe is super simple and anybody can try it out. I have added few notes in the grilling step which are the lessons I learnt while creating this recipe. Hope it will be helpful.
Serve the grilled Banana as a dessert for a party.
Step 1: Ingredients
Serves - 3
Banana - 2
Honey - 1/4 Cup
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 Tsp
Icecream (Any Flavor) - (Optional)
* I have used the home made Chocolate Banana Ice cream. I have used the recipe from the 'ibles link below.
Step 2: Slit the Banana
Take the banana. Slit it length wise.
So there are two lengthwise section of banana from each one of them.
Do not remove the peel. This will prevent the banana from burning in the grill.
Step 3: Prepare for the Grill
Smear the grill with oil. Place the cut side down.Place the banana, with its long side perpendicular to the grill. this is to get the grill marks.
Notes: (Lessons learnt)
My banana was slightly curved and I was wondering how I will get the grill marks on it! This is what I found.
- If the banana is curved and not touching the grill, do not worry. You can place a baking tray over the banana so that by the weight of it, the banana gets flattened.
- If this also not possible, Just grill the banana. After few minutes of grilling, the banana will soften and shrink and you will get the grill marks.
Step 4: Grill
Grill the banana at about 250 degree Celsius for 7-10 minutes.
We can know that the grilling is done when the cut side is little charred.
The peels will start moving away from the flesh of the banana.
Step 5: Honey Glaze
Prepare the Honey glaze. Add the Cinnamon Powder to honey and mix them till well combined.
Step 6: Apply the Glaze
Remove the peel of the banana. Place the grilled banana in the serving plate.
Apply the glaze over the banana. Serve it with Ice cream.
You can serve it with Ice cream of your choice. Vanilla Ice cream is a good combination with it. If you are hard core Banana lover then you can use the Banana Ice cream to serve with the grilled Banana.
Drizzle Honey over the Ice cream. Enjoy!
