Green Banana (Vazhakkai) Fry II

My Mom prepares Green Banana Puttu and usual fry. This recipe is something different I saw my neighbors preparing. I tried today with small Bananas I had and deep fried them for my son who is fond of chips. I got this recipe here. I searched for the recipe that gives a tangy flavor, but couldnt find. I need to check out with my friends..


Green Banana (small) 3
Chilli Powder ½ tsp
Rice Powder ¼ tsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste ¼ tsp
Water 3-4 tsp


Peel and chop Green Banana into circular shape pieces.


Combine chopped Green Banana with all the other ingredients. Mix well. Keep it aside for 15 minutes.

Deep fry till done.

Serves: 2
Serve with Rice and Sambar or any Kuzhambu.


Green Bananas can also be shallow fried and large Bananas can also be used. I think Large Bananas would suit the best for shallow frying.

Madhu said...

That looks so crunchy and delicious. Can we use plantains instead of green banana?

Laxmipriya said...

Thanks all for your comments.

@ Madhu, Green Banana is nothing but unripe or Raw Banana. Plaintains are mostly used to prepare chips and are larger than Bananas. It can be cooked and served. Some confuse Banana and Plaintain as both are similar with slight differences.

Plaintain gives a light sweetish taste (for ex.. Nendran Plaintain) and so I recommend you to try with Green(Unripe) Banana.

@ Nithya, Sangee, Radhika, Give a try.. You will love it for sure.
