Vazhaikai curry / Raw banana curry




Ingredients:

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
Method:
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.
