img_1682

Chocolate banana halwa is a absolutely a delicious sweet and tastes more like the panchamirtham offered in temples as prasadham. I was in idea of taking part in a contest in which a sweet has to be submitted with chocolate as a one of the ingredients. When I saw banana in kitchen, I thought of doing a halwa with banana and chocolate syrup. After I prepared and served, my husband told me it tastes like a panchamirtham and we named it chocolate panchamirtham. 🙂 🙂
