Plantain Masala Curry / Vazhakkai Poriyal

I love and respect the plantain tree! Its one tree which could be useful for us from top to bottom :)

Plantain is a very versatile vegetable since it can simply take the flavors of the masala that we use and taste yummy. This time I tried a new version of curry with it by infusing two flavors - garlic and saunf. It turned out to be extremely aromatic and delicious :)

Plantain / Vazhakkai - 2
Saunf / Sombu - 2 tsp
Urad dhall - 1 tsp
Garlic pods - 4
Curry leaves - few
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - for taste

Take saunf and urad dhall in a dry pan and roast it for two minutes. Now powder this in a mixie and keep it aside. 

Peel and chop the plantain into small square pieces. 

Take 2 tblsp of oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds, curry leaves and now add the chopped plantain pieces and fry until the plantain becomes soft and cooked. 

Add salt, turmeric powder, chilly powder and the above made saunf & dhall powder to the plantain and mix well. 

Now crush the garlic pods roughly with a mortar and pestle and drop it into the curry. Mix well and fry for few minutes. 

Transfer to the serving bowl. 

Aromatic plantain masala curry is ready :) 

Serve hot with rasam rice or curd rice :)
