Hello -

Just wanted to know when you say bananas, you mean regular banana's in the supermarket that you can peel off and right away, or the nes that are rather Green , mostly found in Mexican markets that are called plantains? I really like banana's and owuld like to make this for myself; but just want to be sure of the type of bananas.
Thank you.

Hi Nibir, Sorry about delay. Hope you're still interested in this recipe. I meant the yellow bananas and not plantains. Try it out!
