Aratikaya masala / Raw Banana Masala




Ingredients:

Raw banana - 1
Onion - 1 (large size)
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Garlic - 4 flakes
Cumin seeds/jeera - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt - As required
curry leaves
Oil



Preparation:

Peel the banana and chop them into medium-sized slices.

Grate onion and keep aside.  Make a paste of ginger and garlic and to this add the red chilli powder
along with a little bit of water, mix them well and keep aside.

Heat oil in a kadai and add cumin seeds/jeera and curry leaves.  When the seeds start  spluttering add grated onion and fry till it starts turning light brownish.  Add turmeric and mix it well.  Now add the ginger paste and spice soaked in water and stir for a few minutes till good smell comes.   Add the banana slices and fry for a few minutes, add salt and mix it well and close with a lid and reduce the flame.  Keep checking in between if the banana pieces are cooked.  Remove from fire and serve.

Tastes good with rice and rotis.

*** if you like the banana pieces to be a bit crisp, fry it first in oil and keep side and add it towards the
end of the recipe and cook it for 2-3 minuets.
