  1. I have used the small elaichi kela but you can use the normal variety of ripe kela to make this.(use 2.5 banana for this recipe)
  2. You can adjust the quantity of water according to your preference, can add little more or less water,taste good both ways !
  3. If banana's are over ripe then you can skip adding sugar,sugar is optional.
