  • 2 sprigs Curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee
Instructions
  1. Peel the banana and cut it vertically into half. Slice each half into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Cook the sliced banana along with chilli powder, pepper powder, turmeric powder, salt and required amount of water.
  2. Add slightly beaten yogurt to this and cook until the yogurt gets thickened. Stir continuously to prevent curdling. (this is a time-consuming process)
  3. Grind together coconut, cumin seed, fenugreek and green chilly with little water to a smooth paste and add to the banana mixture, mix well. Cook for few minutes and turn off the heat. The gravy tends to thicken as it rests.
  4. Heat ghee in a small pan and fry mustard seed, dry red chilly, curry leaves. Add this to the curry.
  5. NOTE - One cup = 250 ml, one tablespoon = 15 ml, one teaspoon = 5 ml.
