Caramelized Banana Topping

This is one of my kids' favorite pancake topping and in fact, it got made twice in my kitchen this week. Sometimes I make a thicker version of this delicious sauce (if i can call it so) and love to slather it on my toast instead of jam. Today, my daughter dumped a spoonful of this topping at the center of a dosa and ate it as a roll. Just as yesterday's peach sauce, this fruit based topping too does not take much time and is simple to prepare. The sweetness and the thickness of the syrup can be controlled. This batch of sauce had a darker hue but sometimes it is on a lighter side.

2 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. water
3 - 4 tbsp. brown sugar
1 medium sized banana
2 tbsp. coarsely chopped toasted walnuts / pecans

* Cut the banana into 1/4 inch thick rounds.
* Melt the butter in a pan. Add sugar and water to the butter and continue cooking until the sugar melts and starts to bubble.
* Add the banana slices and cook about 2 minutes on each side.
* Add the toasted nuts and mix well. Turn off the stove and serve warm.

Even though I am
Not a great fan of banana , I like the combo you have used . The brown sugar and pecans must be giving it such a wonderful flavour.
