Plantain Stir Fry | Stir Fry Recipes

And Thursday came and this is last Thursday of the month and am here with the post of Vegan recipes for the Vegan Thursday ,where we post every first and last Thursday a vegan recipe in our space.This is the not a new recipe and this is made with Plantain and this is done mostly in homes of South India.I already posted plantain masala which is also a vegan one and that needs coconut paste and spicy masala powders to cook it.But this is a simple one and this need only 2 green chillis for the heat and grated coconut to give a light sweetness to the recipe.

The plantain is easy to cook vegetable and this contains more carbohydrates as potato has.We use all the parts from plantain tree starting from leaf,stem,banana and also the flower.The flower fell down once the banana start to mature and immediately we cut the flower from it and cook as Curry or koftas or some basic dal recipes too.The raw banana has so many types in it and also the tastes too different from each other.The banana varieties are identified through their shapes and also the color on their skin and i love all the types from it.This stir fry we make when fasting is on that day and prepared along with some spicy curry with mild sambhar and Rasam.This goes perfectly with sambhar,rasam.Lets start preparing this...
