Raw Banana Poriyal Recipe (Banana Fry with Coconut)

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! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing all these wonderful content. In addition, the perfect travel as well as medical insurance strategy can often relieve those fears that come with travelling abroad. Some sort of medical crisis can shortly become extremely expensive and that’s likely to quickly place a financial stress on the family’s finances. Putting in place the great travel insurance offer prior to setting off is definitely worth the time and effort. Cheers

Something also important I would like to mention is that fat reduction is not supposed to be about going on a dietary fads and trying to lose as much weight as you can in a couple of days. The most effective way in losing weight is by acquiring it slowly but surely and right after some basic ideas which can allow you to make the most out of your attempt to lose weight. You may be aware and be following some tips, nonetheless reinforcing awareness never does any damage.
