Kurukku Kaalan/ Raw Banana in Yogurt Gravy

After an authentic Andhra style side dish, am taking you all to God's own country, yes my today's post have its important place in Kerala Onam Sadya. Kurukku kaalan is a yogurt based tangy gravy prepared simply either with elephant yam or raw banana or else both. This dish is served along with varieties of dishes during Onam festival and this gravy makes an excellent dish to enjoy thoroughly with white rice. Kurukku kaalan gets ready very easily and the grounded paste used in this gravy plays an important role. A thick grounded coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies makes the difference between this dish from other yogurt based gravies prepared in many regions of India.For my today's post instead of making this dish with yam and raw banana, i simply went with raw bananas.

As am running my second week of blogging marathon with an interesting theme 'one vegetable in different forms', since i picked raw banana as my star vegetable,hence today am posting this Kerala style yogurt based mildly spicy and fingerlicky gravy.This gravy is one of the quickest gravy which can be prepared very much quickly and the best part of this dish is even a novice can make this gravy without any difficulties. Yes this gravy is very easy to make and absolutely a flavourful dish to enjoy without any fuss.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.
