Kaya/Raw Banana Thoran

A super delicious stir fry prepared with raw banana cubes along with a grounded paste of coconut,green chilly,cumin seeds and garlic. This is how Keralites prepare their raw banana, seriously this thoran is one of my most favourite dish from their cuisine. Serve this thoran with hot piping rasam, you will definitely love this combination and both together tastes absolutely divine.Easy breezy stir fry gets ready easily and you can enjoy even as a simple snacks, yep i usually finish them as a snack if there is any leftover after our lunch. You can also add any kind of beans to this thoran to turn them as a protein rich stir fry.Sending to Kerala Kitchen guest hosted by Julie.
