Brazilians eat fried bananas either with a meal or as a dessert with cinnamon and sugar.
Preparation time: 5 minutes;
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Ingredients for four servings:
2 tbsp of butter or margarine
2 tbsp of sugar
½ tsp of cinnamon
Peel the bananas and cut them in half lengthwise.
In a frying pan, melt the butter or margarine. Fry the bananas on one side until they are golden brown, for about 5 minutes. Turn them and fry them on the other side until they turn golden brown.
While the bananas are frying, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
With a spatula, remove the bananas and place them on a serving platter. Sprinkle them with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and serve hot.
