Vazhaikai curry / Raw banana curry


Raw banana - 3-4
Urad dal - 1 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Haldi powder - 1/4 tsp
Dry red chillies - 2
Salt as required
Curry leaves powder - 2 tsps ( I have already given the recipe of the curry leaf powder in my old post sometime back)
Oil for cooking
Peel the raw banana skin and cut into half length wise.
When it is cut into half length you can see that shape of D while cutting the pieces.
Now cut the banana into D shaped slices and put in the water.
Take a kadai pour some oil and season with urad dal, mustard seeds, hing and dry red chillies.
Discard the water and put the D shaped banana pieces on the seasoning and stir fry.
Add salt as required and 2 tsps of curry leaves powder and mix nicely and cook.
The curry leaf powder gives a good aroma to the curry.
When the banana curry is cooked nicely, remove from fire and transfer to a serving bowl.
The Vazhaikai curry is ready to be had with rasam rice or sambar rice or however you wish to have it with as a side dish.
