Aratikaya vepudu (Raw Banana stir fry)

Raw Banana stir fry is a very simple and wholesome dish and can be prepared in less than 15 mins. I love it with Sambar, Dal, Curd and just as it as a starter :-)

Ingredients :

Raw Banana - 3 No.s
Chilli powder - 2 spoons
Cummin powder - 1 spoon
Salt - To taste
Oil - for shallow frying

Method :

Peel the raw banana's and cut them into cubes. Usually they change to black color after sometime. You could put them in water mixed with some curds (very little amount). This would stop these cubes from changing color. Heat the wok and pour 2 spoons of oil. When the oil is really hot, drop in one cube and make sure that its instantly starts getting fried. This is the indication that it is ready. Add the rest of the cubes and gently toss to cover all the cubes with the oil. Cover it and cook till half done. Now, add the cummin powder and fry till the raw smell of the cummin powder vanishes. At this stage add the chilli powder and salt. Fry till golden brown. Serve hot with Rice.
