Vazhakkai Podimas

Hi Supermoms,

Continuing the Kalyana Samayal/Marriage Special recipes , today I am sharing the recipe of Vazhakkai Podimas/ Raw banana stir fry. Unlike the usual stir fry, the raw banana is first steamed, peeled and then grated to make the stir fry. The podimas is so tasty with the addition of fresh grated coconut and has the infused flavours of lemon, ginger and green chillies. 

This is a very light and delicious stir fry recipe, that can be made within minutes.
