A simple side dish for lunch,with sambar,rasam and curd rice.I liked sharmis passions's vazhakai poriyal,i made lilttle modulations that match my taste.Here presenting u my version of platain fry...



2.Red chilli..........2 to 3

3.Black pepper corns.....1 tsp

4.Grated coconut.........1/2 cup

5.Oil............3 to 4 tbsp

6.Mustard seeds.......1 tsp

7.Channa dhal...........2 tbsp

8.Coriander leaves.........few

9.Salt to taste.

10.Turmeric powder & hing...... a little


1.Fry chilli and black pepper corns with few drops of oil for few seconds.

2.Grind coconut,fried chilli and pepper to a powder state without water.

3.Cut plantain,a lil bigger(like medium squares) than usual,boil them separately in pressure cooker.

Note:Make sure that u dont over cook it(not too mashy).

4.Take a big bowl add in the grounded paste,salt,turmeric powder,hing and cooked plantain and mix well.Set this aside for a while,say it for 10 to 15 mins,until it marinates well.

5.Now heat oil in a frying pan,allow mustard seeds to splutter,then add in the channa dhal,curry leaves,and the marinated plantain,fry well for 10 to 15 minutes.
