I make this recipe often with raw unripe bananas. So thought of sharing the recipe too. Healthy, easy and nutritious.

What we like about cooked raw unripe bananas is its texture and taste. The tempering or tadka in this poriyal recipe also packs in a lot of flavor and not to forget the mild sweetness that comes from grated coconut. This recipe is again a no onion no garlic recipe. Few more Raw banana recipes on the blog are:

Raw banana poriyal is mildly spiced and goes very well as a side dish with sambar-rice, rasam-rice. You can also have with chapatis.

  1. Can you also leave some data around how much does the dish weigh in grams, I.e., output…. so that it is easier for visitors to make sense of the calorie consumption, per cup of 50 grams or 100 grams as the case maybe…

    1. thanks for the suggestion sashi. we use a serving portion right now to determine the calories. the entire dish is divided into the number of servings as mentioned in the recipe card. to be honest most food bloggers do not prefer to give the nutrition info as it is rough or approximate for eg the nutrition value of an ingredient will vary as per different software or programs available on the web. so i would suggest not to take these nutritional values in recipe websites as hundred percent accurate. if i had a team i would have weighed the dish in grams and updated.

    1. we removed the app as managing it was becoming very difficult. right now all the recipes are on the website.
