Plantain Pepper Curry

Plantain Pepper curry1

Banana plant is one of those kind where all the parts of the plant are very useful to mankind. :) I love bananas a lot, be it raw or ripe. They are so filling and yummy :)

Deep fry or shallow fry or simply fry or cook.. whatever you do, plantain would taste perfect and blend with all the spices you try to add to it. That is simply called as versatility.

This is one aromatic and different flavoring of plantain tat I recently tried out and it was really tasty. It got over in no time :)

Plantain Pepper curry
Ingredients:

Plantain - 2
Onion - 1
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Saunf / Fennel(Sombu) powder - 1 tsp
Pepper - for taste
Salt - for taste

Plantain Pepper curry2

Method:


Peel and chop the raw banana into thin long pieces and keep it aside.

In a pan take few tsps of oil and add curry leaves, saunf powder, finely chopped onions, ginger garlic paste, chopped plantain pieces, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt one by one and fry for a min. Now sprinkle some water and close the pan with a lid. Simmer the stove and allow it to cook for a while. This will take five minutes. Once the plantain gets cooked and the curry becomes dry, add the pepper powder and mix well.

Plantain pepper curry is ready to serve :)

Serve with with curd rice or ghee rice :)

Happy making :)
