Kaayappola / Pazhappola / Egg and Banana Sweet

Few ingredients and a wonderful dish! Once you have, you will crave for it...
This is also known mutta marichathu in Malabar. Don't know what is the difference between kayappola and mutta marichathu, hope some experts could help.. :) Try using non stick pressure cookers or pans while preparing this to avoid sticking.
Am little busy, thats why not responding to your queries, please bear with me. Will try to reply you once when am free, insha Allah.

Ingredients used,
bananas 2
eggs 3
cardamom 3 no. powdered
sugar 2 or more Tbsp
ghee 2 Tbsp
raisins few
cashew few

How to prepare,
Boil bananas in little water.
Drain water when cooked and allow to cool.
Chop bananas into small pieces.
Heat 1 Tbsp ghee in a pan, roast cashews and raisins.
Take them, keep aside.
Next, fry the chopped banana pieces in this , flip over to do both sides.
See pazham vaattiyathu recipe.
If needed, add more ghee for this.
Then break eggs into a bowl.
Add cardamom powder, sugar and beat well.
Add the bananas , cashews and sugar to this.
Heat a pressure cooker, grease it with remaining ghee.
Pour the mixture into it.
Put lid, without weight.
Cook this on a very low flame for about 15 minutes.
Check occasionally by inserting a tooth pick to know the dish is cooked inside.
When done, allow to cool.
Transfer to another pan to serve.
