Vazhakkai (Raw Banana) & Oats Kara Poriyal

Raw banana as anything is our family's favourite for the sure, chips with this raw banana or gravies with anything and raw banana are my H's favourite..i can list out many and more dishes which are our favourite with this raw banana..Yesterday we went for shopping to Indian groceris and i picked few raw bananas,thought of making out some gravies, they were really very fresh and i planned to make out some stir fries with those green raw bananas and finally i went for a stir fry with quick cooking oats where normally i used to make out this stir fries with grated coconut, i replace the coconut part with quick cooking oats which turned out this dish truly delicious, healthy and also very prefect as side dish...We loved it..This delicious and spicy stir fried dish suits awesome as side dish for any rice dishes and i can definitely say that none will find out the difference unless u say that u have used oats in this dish..




2nos Raw bananas/Vazhakkai
1tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Coriander powder
3tbsp Quick cooking oats
1/2tsp Urad dal & Mustard seeds
5nos Curry leaves
Oil
Salt

Peel the skin and chop the raw bananas as small pieces, cook the chopped raw banana chunks in hot water with turmeric powder until they get half cooked, strain the water and keep aside..

Heat enough oil in a pan, let splutters the mustard seeds, urad dal ,curry leaves and add immediately the half cooked raw bananas,toss gently and add the red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt, put the flame in simmer..stir everything well and cook in simmer by stirring often until the spices get well coated, finally add the oats and cook again for few minutes until the oats get cooked...

Serve hot as side dish!!!

It has been ages since I did vaazhakka poriyal; each time I get them, I mange to do some vaazhakka kavaappu ( vaazhakka bhajis), that everyone at home is very fond of.

the poriyal sounds tasty and healthy at the same time!
