Raw Banana Curry

This recipe post is coming after a long time, although this recipe was made several times. there are few more recipes lying around, to which I  have not paid attention to. Now, during this self quarantine time I will try to post them all.

Raw Banana Curry

Coming to the recipe, this is not a traditional Raw Banana Curry. my own take deriving from multiple recipe sources. The curry is creamy and mild flavoured – goes well with rice and roti.

Also, the perk is you can substitute paneer, soy chunks,aloo, mixed daal, mixed vegetable in place of potato. They will taste equally good.

A lot of people are spending quality time at home, trying out new hobbies, picking up a long pending task, trying to cook new dishes, lending a helping hand at daily house chores and many others.
