This raw-banana curry is typically Tanjore style....Raw bananas are cooked in water till they are soft (but not mushy) and then tossed in coconut oil, with some seasonings. "குழசல்" in tamil means, very soft, almost mushy. This curry goes very well with sambar and rasam. Please check my other South Indian Curries
Here are 2  different varieties of raw banana curry:
1. Raw banana podimas
2. Raw banana stir fry
Please check my Glossary for any unknown terms

Serves 2-3

In a kadai, keep water enough to immerse the cut raw bananas and heat

Add turmeric powder

Boiling well, and getting cooked. Can keep the kadai covered for sometime too

When the raw bananas are half cooked, add salt

When they are cooked to a soft consistency, drain them

See!!! like this they must be cooked...when pressed, they must be like this...

Now comes the seasoning part...pan heated with coconut oil, all the above mentioned seasonings added.

 Now, add the cooked raw bananas, curry leaves and grated coconut. Flames on the lowest, otherwise, the soft raw bananas might stick to the pan.

Give it a good mix

Serve this extremely aromatic curry with rice, brown or white, sambar or rasam.
