Plantain Rice Fry:

Vazahikkai Arisi Poriyal. Green Plantain Fry. Kacha Kela Ka Subzi.

I happen to taste this recipe in Coimbatore…at friends place. Tho’ the original recipe asked for peeling the skin, grating and was without turemric! I have altered all along and practically couldnt bring that orinigal taste or crispy-ness! So… a fix, I added rice flour to promote some crispy-ness!! It turned okay! Well……will one day post that original recipe without my overwhelming aimbitions. Meanwhile….try to enjoy this!


Plantain 1
Rice flour 1/4 cup
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Turmeric 1 pinch
Chilies 3 sliced
Chana-Urad dal 2 spoon
Mustard 1/4 spoon
Curry leaves few.


Cook plantain with limited salt till tender. Set aside.

In a wok, heat oil. Add mustard, chana-urad dal, asafoetida, turemric, chilies and curry leaves.

Now add this cooked plantain to this above set-up. Fry real good over high heat. Add rice flour to bring some crispyness! When fragrant…remove from heat!
