Plantain Fry(Bookmarked)

Ever since I saw this is Pushpa's blog I decided to make it because its different in the way I make the usual poriyals at home which is very boring. Fennel seeds, garlic aroma filled my home while preparing this. Rarely I get these raw plantains at the Indian store, so whenever I get I wanted to make something different. So thought of trying this the other day. Glad that I tried and it tasted good too. I got the recipe from here.

The way I prepared:
Raw plantain - 4 (peeled and cut)
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2 tsp

Grind into paste with little water:
Garlic pods - 4-5
Chopped ginger - 1 tsp
Shredded coconut - 4-5 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Cinnamon stick - 1


  • Mix plantains, turmeric, little salt in a vessel. Cover and cook with needed amount of water. Drain and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add chilly powder, ground paste, salt and fry for 2 mins.
  • Add the plantain pieces, mix well and fry until they become golden brown and crispy.
 I didn't add serrano chilly, onions, tomatoes. You can add them if you prefer.
Thanks to Pushpa for the wonderful recipes in her blog.
