Kaaya Mulakooshyam 2

Ingredients(Serves 4 - 5):

Raw Banana     -- 2 small
Pearl onions    -- 12 - 15
Garlic                 -- 4 - 5, small cloves
Whole pepper corns -- 1½ tsp
Chilly powder -- ½ tsp
Coriander powder -- 2½ tsp
Kudam Puli      --  3 – 4 pieces
Curry leaves    -- 1 sprig
Coconut oil      -- 2 - 3 tsp
Salt                      -- To taste


Soak the kudam puli pieces in a cup of warm water. Keep it aside.

Cut the banana into medium-sized cubes, into a vessel filled with water. Water helps to save the colour of the banana from turning to black / dark.

Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Add chilly powder and coriander powder.Saute for 2 - 3 minutes on low flame. Meanwhile cruch the peppercorns in a mixer. Add the pearl onions and garlic to the mixer and crush all to a coarse mixture. Immediately add this to the pan and saute until the water is evaporated.

Too much grinding or keeping the ground mixture for a while will induce the bitter taste of the pearl onions.So take care to just crush it and saute it immediately.

Add the kudam puli pieces with the soaked water, few curry leaves, enough salt and bring to a boil. Drain the chopped banana and add to the gravy. Cook until the banana cubes are fully done and the gravy is thick.

Add coconut oil and a few curry leaves. Close with the lid and keep aside for few minutes to help the flavors blend.

Serve hot with rice.
