Another edition of Blogging Marathon this is 70th edition. We few bloggers doing this Marathon almost from five year and we reached this mile stone. Now we become like a good family and I am very happy to be in this family. Thanks to Sri Valli for this beautiful family.
                                                                Like every month this month also we have some themes my theme for this week is Tawa fried recipe. Actually I was suppose to start my themes from first week but could't do because of health reasons. So I have started my posts from second week with tawa recipes.
                                                                When I have selected this theme the first recipe came to my mind is this tawa frided vegetables. My mother use to make this chops as a side dish with pappucharu or tomato pappu or dosakaya pappu this is the perfect combination. For today recipe I used raw banana other then this you can make this chops with potato, yam and eggplant, ridge gourd. when you are using eggplant or ridge gourd no need to boil the vegetable before you fry them on tawa
                                                      I used red chilli paste for this recipe for red chilli paste soak few dry red chillies in warm water remove from water add a table spoon water and grind in to a smooth paste. In the place of this red chilli paste you can add red chilli powder that will give a different flavor That's totallr your choice.
