Raw Banana Poriyal Recipe (Banana Fry with Coconut)


  • raw bananas – x2 bananas
  • coconut oil/ghee – x1 table spoon
  • urad dal (black gram) – x1 table spoon
  • curry leaves (fresh or dried) – x20 leaves
  • green chilli – x1 (or to taste, depending on your spice tolerance level!)
  • grated coconut (the best option is to use fresh coconut, but if you have only dried grated coconut at hand, it will also work) – x1 cup
  • chopped coriander – x2 table spoons
  • tumeric – x1/2 tea spoon
  • black mustard seeds – x1/2 tea spoon
  • salt to taste


Step 1. Peel the bananas – remove the top green layer of the skin only. Slice them into half.

Step 2. Boil the bananas until they are half-cooked, for about 10 minutes.

Step 3. Strain the water, peel the remaining skin and chop the bananas into thin round slices.

Step 4. Heat coconut oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and when it splutters add urad dal, curry leaves, sliced chili. Stir for a few quick seconds and do not sneeze into the pot.

Step 5. Add sliced banana to the pan and mix well but gently. Remember we are not making a mash here.

Step 6. Add turmeric, stir again, cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Eat and go to sleep like a boss! 🙂
