Raw Plantain Fry / Vazhakkai Varuval!

Vazhakkai Varuval is my all time favourite, Very simple and quick to cook. These compliment amazingly well with sambar rice, one of the best combinations.

Vazhakkai Varuval

Serves 2

You Will Need:

1 Large Vazhakkai / Raw Plantain, Skinned & a Little Thickly Sliced
1/4 tsp Fennel Seeds
1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
Few Curry Leaves
3 – 4 Tbsp of Oil

Spice Marinade:

1 1/2 tsp of Kuzhambu Milagai Thool (Store Bought Ones Don’t do the work)
1/2 Tsp of Turmeric Powder
Salt to Taste

The Cooking:

Place the raw plantain in a plate and sprinkle salt, turmeric powder and chilli powder. If required just sprinkle little water bring everything together.

Heat oil on a pan and once hot crackle mustard seeds, fennel seeds & curry leaves. Now place the sliced plantain on a single layer and cook on medium heat till the masala is cooked and they become a dark brown colour. Don’t stir constantly, they need time to cook & the masala will come off in the oil if you keep moving them around. But flip them occasionally to make sure they get roasted evenly.

Serve Hot with rice!
