Vazhakkai Podimas (plantain banana)

Plantain Banana is highly nutritious as it contains carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and is also easily available. Vazhakkai podimas is a recipe different from regular poriyal or fry. I gave a try of the below recipe as it follows very simple steps with less ingredients. Outcome be a good mouth watering side dish for rice. Normally this recipe goes well with Sambar Rice or Mor kuzhambu or Vathakozhambu
