Plantain (வாழைக்காய்) is rich in vitamin A, B6 and C, as well as minerals and dietary fiber. Though plantain can be cooked in different ways, ‘spicy plantain fry’ made with curry masala powder, is the most popular recipe in my home. It is yummy, tasty and goes very well with rice and sambar or rasam. Try this recipe when you cook plantain next.
Ingredients: (Serves two)
Plantain – 1 no, sliced thin
Onion – 1 no, large, sliced
Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
Curry masala powder (பொரியல் பொடி) – 2 teaspoons (adjust to taste)

Method: Wash and peel the plantain. Slit it into two halves vertically. Cut the slit half into thin slices. Soak the cut pieces of plantain in water immediately, lest the pieces will turn dark if left exposed to air. Slice the onion and keep aside.
