  1. I prefer to give kiddo elaichi bananas but if you don't have elaichi bananas locally available, you can use regular ones. It's always best to use local produce as it's fresh and therefore more nutritious.
  2. Typically, this recipe is made using sugar. But instead of adding 2-3 tsp of sugar it is healthier to use jaggery.
