My Grandparents owned a banana plantation near the Queensland border, and as such I was fortunate to acquire some banana recipes that are just that much different. This is a great dish winter or summer, and I find it quick and easy to prepare, and a total change for your taste buds. As with most curry recipes, the chilli and curry powder can be adjusted to suit your own likes. On occasions I also add a side dish of salad, particularly if it is served as a main meal.

I changed a few things( I used olive oil instead of butter, sauteed the bananas; and put the rice IN with the curry sauce. I really found this delicious and totally satisfying by itself! My boyfriend and I are glowing! Thanks for this great recipe!
