This kootu s a nice variation to the usal vaalakkai cuury and podimas. In our home, we used to make this during any poojas performed at home and for over all for for all traditional functions performed at home.the recipe includes chillies,tamarind,jaggerry and thus gives a great taste when mixed with plain rice or as a accomapniment for any other rice.
|RAW BANANA||1 NO.|
|TAMARIND EXTRACT||2 TBLSP|
|GRATED COCONUT||4 TBLSP|
|HING||A GENEROUS PINCH|
Cut the raw bananas into cubes. Pressure cook it along with tamarind extract and 2 tblsp of channa dal. Add hing to it while pressure cooking,since my mom always say it lessens the gas content ,when adding at this stage.
Dry roast coriander seeds,redchillies,and 1 tblsp of channa dal and grind it along with 2 tblsp of grated coconut.
Fry 2tblsp of grated coconut till golden brown and keep it aside.
In a kadai,add a tsp of oil and add mustard to it. When it splutters,add the pressure cooked items and the ground paste to it and mix it well. Check for salt. Add jaggery to it and mix it nicely.
Now add the roasted coconut and garnish with curry leaves.
Tranfer to serving bowl. Enjoy with hot fluffy rice or any rice of ur choice.
