Aratikaya Pulusu/ Raw banana tamarind curry/ Vazakkai kara kuzambu

6 tbsp oil... Most of the diet conscious will stop reading this post as soon as they see this… sorry guy! But this recipe tastes good only with lot of oil…
Raw banana – 1, Thinly sliced
Onion – 2 big, finely chopped
Tomatoes – 2 medium (made to a pulp in a blender)
Fenugreek seeds – 6
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Chili powder – 3 tbsp (adjust according to taste)
Coriander powder – 1 tbsp
Tamarind – key lime size (soaked for 5-10 minutes in half cup water)
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan; use the traditional pan... not a non-stick one...

Add the mustard seeds and fenugreek and let them splutter; add the onions and sauté till transparent pink.
Add the thinly sliced raw banana and fry for about 5 minutes, keep stirring or the onions will burn...
Add chili powder, coriander powder and cook till the raw smell is gone...
Add pureed tomatoes and cook till the raw smell goes away..
Then add the tamarind pulp, 1 cup water and salt.
Cover the pan and boil on a low flame till the raw bananas are soft…

Serve with hot rice and papad..
