Just tried this out today. Did come out well. In addition to the given instructions for the recipe, I roasted a tsp of corriander seeds and few red chillies in very little oil, powdered it & added to the cooked raw banana to make the dish slightly more spicy.

I too omitted the jaggery, but otherwise the recipe was very good and went well with plain rice.
