Plantain South Indian Style

My Mum in law made this the other day and it was really really good, so heres the secret recipe!

  • 3 medium plantain
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • canola oil
  • mustard seeds a few
  • fennel seeds a few
  • curry leaves 4-5
  • masala powder 1 spoon
  • pinch of cumin
  1. remove the outside skin of the plantain and cut into 1/2 inch slices set side
  2. heat the oil and pop the mustard seeds and fennel, add the curry leaves
  3. then add the onion, and garlic and saute for 5 minutes, add the tomato, and reduce the heat down to a simmer.
  4. add turmeric, and masala powder, salt to taste and a 1/4 cup of water add plantain and cover for 7-10 minutes.
Its great with lemon rice, or in my opinion anything, I ate some with chicken!
