Kela Methi nu Shaak | Banana Fenugreek Curry

If you’ve got some overripe bananas languishing in your fruit bowl, put them to good use with these creative and delicious recipe. When bananas are just too ripe and mushy for my taste, I add them to smoothies and milkshakes, Pancakes, Cookies, Oatmeal, Ice cream. But sometimes, I feel like eating something spicy and little sweet at the same time, so what could be better than making curry out of ripe bananas. An overripe banana has so many culinary uses!
Bananas are one of nature’s most perfect fruits. Not only are they packed with nutrients like fiber and potassium, but overripe bananas are a great natural sweetener for muffins, pancakes, oatmeal, smoothies and even doughnuts!
