It’s the national dish of Mauritius . My daughter Anisha had gone for her honeymoon to Mauritius . Where ever they ate any time of the day , they were served banana tarts . My gal and my son in law loved the tart . They went on and on about the banana tart after their trip . I got the recipe from a satellite tv channel. Took note of it and tried . It was so yum And the best part was it tasted exactly like what my daughter had in Mauritius .
