The name Yelakki has been given to these bananas because of their small size and not the flavour. They taste very much like regular bananas but are sweeter and about as big as your palm.
Bananas are well known for their potassium rich flesh. Bananas also full of other nutrient health boosters including vitamin B, C, fiber, and magnesium. They are more calorie dense than most other fruits, making them an extremely efficient and sustainable small meal. These small bananas are very sweet if ripe and can be used in preparing desserts and the raw ones are used to cook savoury dishes.
