This Vazhaikkai fry is a traditional recipe and it goes very well with Sāmbhar / rasam and curd rice. For Today’s lunch , I decided to make this along with Mysore Rasam.
Raw Banana / Vaazhaikkai – 5
Salt – as per taste
Turmeric – 1/2 tsp.
Asafoetida – 3/4 tsp.
Chilli powder – 1 tbsp.
Oil – 3 to 4 tbsp. ( I used Olive oil )
Mustard – for seasoning
1) Remove the skin of banana using a peeler and cut the vaazhaikkai into small cubes and put in water. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once it splutters , Add the chopped vaazhaikkai. Add Turmeric powder , Asafoetida , Salt and chilli powder . Mix it and add oil and keep frying till the banana is cooked well and it becomes little crispy.
Serve it with Rice and Sambhar / Rasam or Curd…
