1.5 large Raw Banana / Baalekayi
4 - 5 Red Chillies

Grape sized Tamarind
Grape sized Jaggary
Pinch of Chilly powder
Salt to taste
1.5 cups grated Coconut
3-4 flakes of Garlic
1 tsp Mustard seeds

Take off the fiber from the banana skin. Chop them into medium sized thin pieces as shown in the picture. Put them in buttermilk water for about 4-5 mins.

Put the chopped banana in a vessel. Add little amount of water, salt, chilly powder, pinch of turmeric powder, jaggary and cook them well by covering a lid.

Put grated coconut, tamarind, 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder, red chillies in a mixer and grind it to smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut use hot water while grinding.) Add this ground masala to a vessel. Add required amount of salt, water and bring it to boil. Keep it in low flame for about 5 mins.

Add mustard seeds and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to sambar. Remove the outer cover of garlic flakes, mash them and add them to a pan. Add 1-2 tsp oil to this pan and fry them in medium flame for few minutes until they turn golden in color. Add this fried garlic to sambar. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice.
