Vaazhaikai(Raw Plantain) fry

From the time I tasted this from my friend's lunch box (in college), I was wondering how to make this so tasty like how I tasted..... but after I learnt this from her mom, it seemed to be so quick and easy.

I just luv this one...Here it goes...!


Raw Plantains - 2
Sambar powder - 1.5 spoons. (or you can use 1 spoon chilly powder, 0.5 spoons coriander powder)
Turmeric - 1/2 spoon
salt - 1 spoon (or as needed)
oil for frying - as needed


  • Cut the plantain into pieces of any desired shape...each shape should not be too thick or too thin (typically round or squared) --refer the above snap..
  • Mix the other 3 ingredients in a bowl, add little water at a time and mix well to make a smooth paste( should not be too watery)
  • Now add the plantain pieces to this bowl and mix everything together...
  • Keep this aside for 20 mins.
  • Now take a dosa pan, or any flat iron/non-stick skillet
  • Once the pan is hot, add 1 spoon of oil and arrange 4-5 pieces at a time in the pan(add more oil if needed)
  • Let them fry for a min or two..then turn them the other side and fry for 1 or 2 mins again...(Cut each piece with a fork to see if they are soft...else fry for some more time..)
  • Again for the next set of pieces follow the above procedure again

Raw Plantain fries are ready and yummy..... :)) try and see...!


  1. Tried it today and it tasted good.I always bake with the above said ingredients as it will consume less oil.Try it once!!!

  2. ya should try that way coz we can reduce the amount of oil in taken..thanks for that idea rami.
