Raw Banana Peels Stir-fry/Kaya Tholi Thoran

Have you ever tried a stir fry with raw banana peels? you guys have to give a try to this wonderful stir fry. You wont ever trash these peels anymore if you try your hands in making this stir fry. Once you peel the skins of the raw banana aka green plantains, just chop them and cook in water until these peels get cooked.With usual spices, temper this stir fry and cook along with a coconut,green chilly,garlic cloves and cumin seed paste, your kaya tholi thoran is ready. I crossed this thoran long back in this blogworld,but somehow i couldnt able to prepare them earlier.

Last week, i got super fresh raw bananas from Indian store,after making chips with the raw bananas,instead of trashing their peels, i simply prepared this peels as this thoran. I served this thoran with hot piping rasam and everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly.Until i revealed the secret, none at home noticed that this thoran is prepared with raw banana peels.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Go green guest hosted by Amurta.


4nos Raw banana peels (chopped)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
Few curryleaves

To grind:
2tbsp Grated coconut
1tsp Cumin seeds
3nos Green chillies
4nos Garlic cloves

Grind all the ingredients under the list 'to grind' as fine paste and keep aside.

Meanwhile cook the chopped raw banana peels in water with turmeric powder and salt until they get cooked. drain the water.

Heat the oil, let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves, now add the cooked raw banana peels, grounded paste and salt(if needed) and cook until the raw bananas get well coated with grounded paste.

Serve as side dish with rice and dal.
