Preheat oven to 200 Degrees Centigrade. Peel and mash the bananas with a fork and keep aside. DO NOT use mixer to mash.
Sift together flour and baking soda and powder. Add the chopped nuts and mix well. Add melted butter, condensed milk, Vanilla essence and mashed bananas. Mix well. Add water little by little to form an uniform batter.
Transfer to greased pan and tap to level. Bake at 200 degrees C for about 50 minutes. The cake is done when it begins to leave the sides of the pan. Remove from oven and leave in pan for 5 minutes. Then separate from pan and turn on to a cooling rack. Slice with a serrated knife when completely cool. Slices better if chilled in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes.
