Banana-Soji Bath/Balehannu Sajjige

Sajjige is very simple dish made with rave/soji, sugar and water. Today along with those basic ingredients, I  have added Ripe Bananas. Simple, sweet dish to have anytime.


My entry for JFI-Bananas hosted by Mandir of Aahar.

  • Banana - 1(Cut into small peices or mashed gently)
  • Rava/sooji- 1/2 cup
  • Sugar- 2 tbsp(i used raw sugar)
  • Ghee- 2tbsp( 1 tbsp for roasting rava and 1 tbsp to add later)
  • Honey-1 tbs (optional)
  • Cardamom pods- 1 crushed
  • Raisins-2 tbsp
  • Water- 2 cups (for bit thin consistancy)

  1. In a thick base vessle, heat 1 tbsp of ghee and lightly fry rava on medium heat untill the raw smell is gone.
  2. In another pot bring 2 cups of water to boil.
  3. When Rava is well roasted add sugar,bananas, raisins and cardamom powder. Mix well.
  4. Now add boiling water to it. Stir well .
  5. Keep stiring inbetween to break any lumps cook untill everthing mixes well and swith off.
  6. Finally add 1 tbsp of honey and ghee mix well and serve warm.
  7. Garnish with few slices of bananas and sprinkle with raw sugar.
*Above recipe is for medium sweetness, since bannans are also sweet I have used just 2 tbsp of sugar.
