raw banana poriyal recipe, vazhakkai poriyal recipe

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.
