Balekayi Palya / Raw Banana Subji

Ingredients:
1 large Raw Banana / Balekayi (Preferred: Nendra)
Pinch of Turmeric powder
Small grape sized Tamarind / 1/4 tsp Tamarind powder
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Chilly powder
Large grape sized Jaggary
Salt to taste
3 tsp grated Coconut
1/2 tsp Black Gram seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 pieces of Red Chilly
4-5 Curry leaves
2 tsp Oil
Recipe:
Put water and little amount of buttermilk in a vessel. Take off only the fiber from the outer cover of raw banana, chop it into small pices and put them in a vessel containing buttermilk water. (Buttermilk is used to retain the color of banana, otherwise it will become black after chopping.) Keep it for 5 mins and then drain the water.
Put chopped raw banana, tamarind water, salt, chilly powder, jaggary, turmeric powder, around 1/2 cup of water and cook them well by covering a lid. Once the water content is almost dried, add the grated coconut and mix. Keep the palya in low flame for about 2-3 mins.

Put black gram seeds, mustard seeds, red chilly pieces and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and then add it to palya. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice.
