KAALAN a kerala delicocy,I love to have this curry with hot plain rice, andI got this recipe from my friends mom who lives in tiruvanantapuram long back when Iwent to there place aunty made this for lunch one day . and I was behind her for the recipe so sweet she is, again she made this in front of me and I got the recipe THANK YOU SO SO MUCH lakshmi aunty.




INGREDIENTS:----

Half ripe banana-- 2 no cut in to 1 inch pieces

coconut 1/2 cup

curd -- 1/2 cup

green chillies -- 2 no

cumin seeds -- 1/4 tea sp

turmaric powder -- 1/4 tea so

fenugreek seeds -- 3-4 seeds

mustard seeds -- 1/4 tea sp

dry red chillies -- 3-4

water --- 1 cup

salt to taste

coconut oil -- 1 tab sp

a few curry leaves

METHOD:---


Cook banana in water and turmeric powder for 5 min.

Grind coconut ,cumin seeds, green chilli in to a coarse paste with curd and add this coconut paste to banana and switch of the flame, cover and leave for few sec so that it will become warm(please don't boil it if you boil the curry after add the curd then curd will get curdle that won't give a good look to the curry but taste won't change)

now if you want add a little water and mix well

Heat coconut oil in a pan add mustard seeds.dry red chillies and then add fenugreek seeds fry till goldean and add curry leaves then add this to KAALAN(banana mixture) mix well


Serve with hot plain rice

one thing I want to share with you all about coconut oil If you cook coconut oil in aright way that will give very very nice aroma to your curryes

If you dont like coconut oil you can use any other oil as you like

And you can use other veges like pumpkin,yam drumstick
