Artikai Kura / Banana With Coconut
Recipe Credits Bilkees I. Latif's The Essential Andhra Cookbook
I have lots of bananas at the farm and decided to make a regular vegetable using them till I remembered reading a recipe in Bilkee's cookbook . This came out yum , it doesn't look that great but believe me , tasted awesome.
4 Raw Bananas.
1/2 Dry Coconut.
1 Teaspoon Haldi.
1 Tablespoon Besan.
4 Green Chilies - Minced.
2 Onions - Chopped fine.
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic.
1/2 Cup Oil & Ghee.
1. Boil bananas with skin on , Peel and cool them then cut into 1" pieces.
2. Grate coconut , mix with haldi and salt and add in the coconut.
3. Fry cloves and garlic , then add onions and green chilies . When onions turn pink add bananas and fry till they become a light brown. Now add in the coconut mixture and cook covered on low to incorporate all flavors.
I sprinkled water as bananas hadn't picked up flavors well - adding water did the trick and it all came together beautifully !
