In Telugu this curry is called as ‘Ava Pettina Aratikaya Kura’
I learnt this curry from http://www.sailusfood.com/.
2 - 3 people.
Plantain --- 1
Water --- ½ cup
Turmeric powder --- a pinch
Salt --- as per taste
Green Chilies --- 3 small
Ginger Paste --- ½ tsp
Shredded Coconut --- 2 tblsp
Mustard Powder --- ¾ tsp
Red chilly powder --- 1 tsp
But in tht site she asked to grind coarsely: ½ inch ginger piece, coconut piece, ¾ tsp of mustard seeds, & 1 green chilly.
I have ginger paste, shredded coconut, mustard powder. So, instead of green chilly I used red chilly powder.
Oil --- 2 tblsp
Split Urad Dal --- 1 tsp
Mustard seeds --- ½ tsp
Hing --- a pinch
Dry Red Chilly --- 1 (Chopped)
Curry Leaves --- a few
Peel the skin of plantain and chop them to cubes.
In a medium deep pan add chopped plantains, half a cup of water, a pinch of turmeric powder, & enough salt.
Keep the pan on heat till the plantains become tender. Plantains should not be over cooked.
In the meanwhile, if u need to grind … grind them now itself.
Chop green chilies too.
Heat oil in other pan. Add seasoning one by one like… split urad dal, mustard seeds, hing, & chopped dry red chilies.
Add curry leaves & green chilies.
Sauté till the green chilies get white spots.
Add cooked plantains.
Immediately add ½ tsp of ginger paste, 2 tblsp of shredded coconut, ¾ tsp of mustard powder, 1 tsp of red chilly powder or add tht ground coarse paste.
Sauté it for 2 minutes.
Turn off the heat.
Transfer the curry to a serving bowl.
Try to take when the curry is hot.
