Banana

Banana is a type of fruit and I like it very much.

They are nutritious too.

They grow in the tropics.

They are very so sweet and tasty.

There are many kinds of bananas in Malaysia and the best place to buy them is at the farmer’s market (pasar tani).

When I eat bananas, I’ll say “mmmmmmmmm”.

Most ripe bananas are yellow but some of them are green, red and purple too.

The shape of a banana is like a crescent.

I like to eat porridge with fresh banana 🙂

We can also eat raw bananas with ice-cream or make them into banana milkshake.

Some bananas have to be cooked because they are not so tasty when eaten raw.

Bananas that need to be cooked

We can make banana cake, pudding and a lot other tasty dishes.

We can also fry them and they’ll become tasty and crunchy ‘goreng pisang or pisang goreng’ or banana fritters 🙂

My mother will use the over riped banana to make tasty banana balls or ‘jemput pisang’.

But I like banana in syrup or ‘sira pisang’ the most.

A basketful of ripe pisang mas, they are very sweet and tasty 🙂

And I think the ‘pisang mas’ is the tastiest banana 🙂
