Adalah is like "is"/"are"/"am" in English, but only when comparing two nouns. Sometimes it's not needed. It is likely to be used if the sentence is long or complicated.

Buah itu pisang - That fruitis a banana Buah kuning di atas meja ADALAH pisang dari kebun ibu saya. "That yellow fruit on the table is a banana from my mother's garden."

Thanks alot for this explanation, I've always knew the meaning of "adalah" but never knew when to specifically use it.
