And Coming to today recipe its a tawa fry plantain with chettinadu special masala, I seriously do not know whether people do the same masala that i mentioned, because i slightly adopted the masala method and ended up with my very own ingredients which is a super hit and tasty tawa fry. i just loved this version. While frying on the tawa itself i tasted many , cann’t stop my hungry after seeing this in my tawa.
So you can very well try this and surprise your family ,friends and yourself too.
Raw banana(plantain) – 2 nos
oil – to do the shallow fry on the tawa
salt – as required
Turmeric powder – a pinch
curry leaves – few to garnish
cummin seeds – 1tsp
Pepper – 7 to 8 nos
fennel seeds – 1 tsp
onion – 1 medium size finely chopped
coriander powder – 1 tbsp
Red chilly powder – 2 tsp
Garlic – 4 to 5
Gingelly oil – 2 tbsp
Add the given item under ” to grind” in the mixie jar” . Grind in to a smooth paste. Do not add water as we have added gingelly oil it will form a paste.
Now peel the skin of the plantain and cut in to round shape and it should 1/2 cm thick , Do not cut thin as it will break easily while mixing the paste as well cooking. Now add the salt , turmeric powder and grinded paste. mix well so that it evenly spread the raw banana. and keep aside for 20 minutes.
Now heat the tawa and pour some oil and drop one by one of the plantain in the tawa , see the below picture to get some idea. once its cooked turn in to other side and if needed pour some more oil also change the position of the plantain because center part always cook fast adjust it accordingly.
Finally fry some curry leaves and temper it . serve with hot rice, some sambhar or kootu along with this curry .. U will be in heaven. I served along with Palak kootu.
- Make sure the masala is evenly coated and cooked well otherwise u feel raw smell.
- Every time if u need oil just pour it , because it absorbs while cooking
- Thickness of the raw banana should be 1/2 so that u can cook it well otherwise it easily break the shape.
