Vazhakkai Poriyal Recipe
Vazhakkai(Raw Banana / Plantain) is one of my favorite veggies.....I love any dish made with vazhakkai, I've already posted vazhakkai podimas, vazhakkai varuval, and 2 types of vazhakkai curry recipes.This poriyal is a quick side dish that you can make and pair it up with any spicy kuzhambu and call it a days lunch as I did :) I love podimas and this stir fry the best as its less spicy yet flavourful making best combination with spicy curry and rice....yum!
