You need to crush the bananas well in the mixer and make them in to fine form. The next step is to make the syrup of jaggery. It is also possible to make jam with sugar syrup but jaggery is healthier than sugar and so it is good to consider that to be included in the recipes. Take the amount of jaggeries as per your taste and make syrup of that. It is not good to let it get concentrated as we want loose syrup for it.
