Vazhakka Mezhukkupuratti

An easy preparation with green plantains , this was my normal lunch box item , in school . Made with fresh plantains from our own backyard , we never grow tired of this. I was so happy to see green plantains in grocery stores here, thinking i can never miss this one here too

Vazhakka(Green plantain) - 3 nos
Chilly flakes -  1/2 tsp
Chili powder - 1/2 tea spoon
crushed garlic - 2 cloves (optional)
Turmeric powder - a large pinch
Curry leaves
Salt to taste

Cut Vazhakka lengthwise and set aside in water( else it will go dark)
Heat oil in a pan and add sliced onions and curry leaves and fry for 3-4 minutes.Add red chili powder , chili flakes and turmeric powder and mix well, slide in sliced plantain and combine well, add salt to taste and saute till it is done , sprinkle couple of spoons of water in order to prevent it from sticking to the bottom , for like 10 minutes.Serve with Kanji or rice!!!!!
