Milagu Vazhakkai Poriyal/Raw Banana Pepper Stirfry

Raw bananas are our favourite, i 'll cook them atleast once a week and our favourite is always the pan roasted raw banana slices. My H love them simply with his rasam rice, recently i crossed this quick and easy breezy poriyal from a cook book which is quite an interesting pair for curd rice. This poriyal is spiced with green chillies and freshly grounded pepper powder. Both gives a wonderful flavor to this quick stir fry. I prepared this poriyal for our Tamil new year lunch, among the varieties of side dishes i have prepared everyone at home simply enjoyed this side dish.

Trust me, you can enjoy this stir fry even as a filling with toasted bread slices or as a side dish even with some chappathis, yes you hear me right if you are lover of raw bananas you can have it even with some chappathis. If you get raw bananas abundantly dont forget to make this delicious stir fry.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.
