Vazhakkai curry | raw banana curry recipe | no onion no garlic recipes

WITH FRESHLY GROUND SPICES
Vazhakkai curry we generally make by adding sambar powder, but this version of raw banana curry is made at our house during festivals and weddings and always we call this as Vazhakkai Kalyana curry. I have already blogged about the Pooshanikai Kalyana kootu HERE.  Though kids at home prefer the Vazhakkai chips or Vazhakkai curry , few times i make this style of raw banana curry too. Check out my Vazhakkai podimas and Vazhakkai Kootu recipes too, which is also an no onion no garlic recipe.

INGREDIENTS: Serves 2

VAZHAKKAI (RAW BANANA) 1
URAD DAL 1/2 TBLSP
CORIANDER SEEDS 1/2 TBLSP
RED CHILLI 1-2
COCONUT(SCRAPPED) 1 TBLSP
OIL 1 TSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP
TURMERIC POWDER 1/4 TSP
CURRY LEAVES FEW
SALT TO TASTE

Raw banana curry
METHOD:

  • Peel the skin of the raw banana and cut them into cubes. Immerse this into water and add salt and turmeric powder and cook till the vazhakkai becomes soft but yet firm. This will get cooked very fast.
  • Drain the water completely using a colander.

  • Make this into a fine powder without adding water.

Vazhakkai curry      NOTE:

  • If you want you can drizzle few drops of coconut oil at the last to make this  vazhakkai more flavourful.
  • I added 2 red chilli , but felt it is bit spicy so reduce the red chilli according to your taste.
