Malikia,as it is called in Yemen, or Masoub, as it is known in Saudi Arabia, is a sweet and savory banana-based dish made from a base of over-ripe bananas and ground flatbread. Add the cream, nuts, honey, raisins, or whatever you like!
1.Peel and mash the bananas by hand or using a mixer. Place aside in a medium sized bowl.
2. Coarsely grind the bread using a blender or food grinder. Then add to the banana mixture and mix until combined. The ratio of banana to bread should be about 50/50, with the mixture being slightly stiff so that it can be shaped nicely.
3. Spoon the banana mixture into a serving dish and smooth out on top. You can try different shapes and dishes to make the dish more attractive.
4.Add the raisins, almonds, whipped cream, grated cheddar and honey on top of the banana mixture. Heat the masoob in the microwave for 30 seconds if desired.
