Ava Pettina Aratikaaya Kura/Mustard Flavoured Raw Banana

Andhra style side dishes are my favourite, whenever i feel like having something spicy and different from my usual Tamilian side dishes,i will immediately take a look at my cook book collections. I cherish two cookbooks i won through this wonderful virtual world, one among those books is Cooking at home with Pedatha.This book is definitely a treasure if you are searching for authentic Andhra style dishes. While going through this book i got hooked immediately to this mustard flavoured raw banana curry. This curry is definitely an easy breezy dish, goes awesome as side dish with any sort of rice dishes especially with curd or rasam rice.
