This is one of those traditional dishes that i have learnt from my Mother-in-law.A great cook herself , she has patiently taught me many dishes and the process is still ongoing:-) When i read about the challenge in Aipi's blog i knew i would make this. I cook this not only on festive days but also on those days when the bananas are crying for your attention:-)

Ina separate bowl add the jaggery with water to make a watery solution.
