Aratikaya koora(Plantain fry)

Hai friends How r u guys.Now a days i am not posting but last week i got troat infection i cant talk more time if i talk i got fever due to headache.Now i am feeling better.So cant post the recipes frequently.Today i am coming with the simple and easy curry.This is very tasty with the rasam rice.Ok lets go to the recipe.


Raw plantain-2
Green Chillies-2
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
Jeera-1/2 tsp
Urad dal-1/2 tsp
Chana Dal-1/2 tsp
Turmeric little pinch
Salt to taste
Chilli powder Acc to ur taste
Oil -1 tsp
Curry leaves-few


First peel the skin of the Plantain and keep it aside.The peel is used for the curry.
Now chop the plantain ,green chillies,curry leaves and keep it aside.
Place the pan and heat it.When it gets heat add the urad dal,chanadal and fry until it changes the colour.
At this time add the mustard seeds and make it pop when it starts to pop add the jeera,chopped jeera and curry leaves.
Now add the chopped and cleaned plantain  and  turmeric powder mix well and cover this cook for 2 minutes.(This cooks quickly beccause it was chopped into small pieces)
Add the salt and chilli powder to the cooked plantain and fry for 30 seconds.
Nowswitch off the heat and tranfer to the serving bowl.
Serve hot with rasam rice.
I use Vidalia Chop Wizard  chopper.This dont need electricity.But we dont put the whole vegetable or fruit we have to slice and use it as i shown in the pic.This is very good for potatoes,pepper,chayote,tomatoes,onions like so on.I hope u like it.
