Vazhakkai roast, plantain tawa fry recipe with full video, step by step pictures. This is a simple accompaniment for lunch or even can have as such.
I make vazhakkai tawa fry very often whenever I want to cook something quick as side dish for lunch. Both Vj and Aj loves this. I make this usually with my sambar powder as masala for coating. But after I made this idli podi with rice, started using it in different roasts. It turns out crispy because of rice and flavourful because of the spices that have been added in the podi.
So I have given the recipe with idli podi, you can replace this with sambar powder and rice flour.
