Then, the sliced bananas covered with flour mixture are ready to be fried until they turn into brown. 

After that, it's time to mix all the ingredients to make the unti (except grated coconut) until the texture is thick like a reddish sauce. Then, pour the unti sauce onto the fried bananas. Then, sprinkle grated coconut on top of it. Jaja Godoh is ready to be enjoyed with your loved ones!
