Banana Peel Stirfry

I have used the banana peel left over from the  garlic-pepper-vegge-balls recipe for this stir fry which we call mezhukvaratti . In kerala green plantains peels left over from the  banana chips preparation is  used for this stirfry . Here i  have used the regular banana  which we find in Indian grocery store.

Raw Banana - 2 , boiled
Onion or Pear onions  - 2 tbsp , chopped
Curry leaves - a few
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Red chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt to taste.

  1. Boil the bananas  till fork tender and take out the peel.
  2. Use the banana for garlic-pepper-vegge-balls or kerala-style-raw-banana-potato-curry.
  3. And the peel is used for this recipe.
  4. Remove the top fiber layer from the boiled peels and chop finely.
  5. Heat oil and add mustard seeds and let it pop.
  6. Add onion and curry leaves and cook till onion turns translucent.
  7. Add the turmeric and chili powder and cook for a minute.
  8. Add the chopped peels and mix well and add salt.
  9. Cook for another two three minutes and you are ready to serve.
