Banana Shikran is traditionally served with Chapati/Poli. In Karnataka it is offered as Naivedya in temples. It was probably the brain child of a very ingenious mother to see that her children got their daily intake of fruit and milk or by a housewife who had excess bananas and milk offered during a Pooja in the temple on her hands.
