Paccha Kaya Mezhkvarati/ Sauteed Raw Banana

I think every body from south of India makes one or other version of kaya mezhukvarati.I love my mom's kaya thoran too. But there was time when i hated anything made of raw banana :). I remeber a classmate of mine used to bring banana kofta in her lunch box at school. Its been a long time since i have ever eaten any banana kofta. I must try to make it sometime.Banana Bajji sold by street vendors in bangalore is very tasty too. Hmmm writing this blog has inspired me to try some more banana recipes :) . I think must google and see what others are cooking up with banana and try some new recipes.
