Vazhakkai Poriyal (Plantain/Raw Banana Poriyal)

My mom used to make this plantain poriyal very often, other than making plantain bajji. Also I have posted Plantain Puttu, a delicious recipe with plantain. This goes very well with sambar rice or with tamarind curry even. Very easy to make also tastes very good.



Ingredients:

Plantain/Raw Banana - 1 big or 2 medium (peel the skin and cut to small pieces)
Grated coconut - 3 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhania/Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp

Method:

1) Heat a pan, add oil and add mustard seeds. Once it starts to splutter, add urad dal, hing and curry leaves.



2) Then add the cut plantain.




3) Also add all dry powders and salt to it.



4) Mix well and add necessary water, until the plantains gets immersed.



5) Once its done and the plantains are tender, add grated coconut and remove from flame.



Delicious tasting plantain poriyal is ready to taste.
