Raw Banana / Vaazhaikkai Fry


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…
