VAALAKAAI KOOTU RECIPE | RAW BANANA KOOTU - KOOTU RECIPES

This kootu s a nice variation to the usual 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 chilies,tamarind,jaggery and thus gives a great taste when mixed with plain rice or as a accompaniment for any other rice.
Check out my Vazhakkai curry and  Vazhakkai |raw banana chips

Preparation Time: 10 minutes| Cooking time: 20 minutes | Serves :2-3

INGREDIENTS:
RAW BANANA
CHANNA DAL 3TBLSP
REDCHILLIES

JAGGERY 1 TBLSP
GRATED COCONUT 4 TBLSP

CURRY LEAVES FEW
HING A GENEROUS PINCH
CORIANDERSEEDS 2 TSP

METHOD:
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.
