Ingredients: 2 cups of whole wheat, ½ cup together almond slices and cashews, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, 3-5 cardamoms, 3 ripe bananas, 1 cup jaggery, 1 cup yogurt or buttermilk, ½ cup cold butter


1. Sieve all the dry ingredients together and mix them well.

2. Mash the bananas in a bowl.

3. Add the powered jaggery to the mashed banana and mix well.

4. Crumble the butter with your fingers into the banana jaggery mix and add yoghurt. Combine well.

5. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and add the slivered almonds and cashew pieces.

6. Preheat the oven to 350 degree Celsius. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
