- 1 Vazhakkai/ raw banana
- 1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
- ⅛ teaspoon Turmeric
- 2 teaspoon Idli podi with rice or rice flour/ besan
- Salt – As needed
- Oil – As needed
Peel the skin of plantain, wash well and slice thickly than we do for chips. You can slice into rounds or lengthwise too.
Add red chilli powder, turmeric and salt. Mix with a tablespoon of water to coat the plantain. (If using sambar powder, skip red chilli powder). Set for 10 mins.
Add idli podi or rice flour to it and again mix gently to coat.
Heat tawa, place the plantain over it and cook in medium flame. Just ½ to 1 minute. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil.
Flip and cook the other side too until golden. Repeat to finish.
- If not using my idli podi with rice, you can use 1 teaspoon of sambar powder and 2 teaspoon of rice flour.
- even if you don’t have/ don’t want to use sambar powder, use red chilli powder, ½ teaspoon coriander seeds powder. You can also add a pinch of cumin seeds powder and pepper powder.
- Do not slice too thin.
