Some may not know that other than making the roasted curry and the coconut garnished curry, this kind of podimas can also be made. This is so soft, so flavourful and if you follow a few techniques, this will turn out to be a great dish

                                                             Raw banana - 2, mid sized
                                                             Green chillies, 3 chopped
                                                             Ginger, grated - 1 tsp
                                                             Fresh grated coconut - 3 tsps
                                                             Lemon juice - 2tbsps
                                                             Curry leaves
                                                             Salt to taste

                                                                          For seasoning
                                                                      Gingely oil - 2tsps
                                                                      Turmeric powder - a pinch
                                                                       Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
                                                                       Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
                                                                       Split urad dhal - 1tsp
                                            Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Lunch
                                            Prep time: 10mts; Cooking time: 10mts

                                                                      Serves 3
                                Cut raw banana into halves, removing the corners, and pressure cook them for 6-7 whistles. (This depends on the cooker)

The cooked raw bananas, cooling down.

Skin removed

This is a very important step. Before or after  peeling the skin, refrigerate for 1 hour at least.
Then grate the raw bananas.

Ingredients for seasoning

Heat pan, add gingely oil, and add the mentioned seasonings.

Then add the grated raw bananas, and also salt to taste. After switching off, add 2 tbsps lemon juice. 

Serve hot with any rasam or kuzahmbu of your choice.

*There is another variety of podimas too.
*In 1/2 tsp oil, roast 1 tsp channadhal, 2 tsps coriander seeds, 3-4 red chillies, and also 3 tsps of grated coconut, and coarsely powder them. After seasoning, you can add the grated bananas and this coarse powder. Lemon juice is not a requisite for this. Tastes great!
*While the first variety is sober and subtle in taste, the second variety befits spice lovers.
