Ripe Banana Gojju

How long it takes : 30 minutes

Number of servings : 4-5

Ripe Banana is not the usual fruit, as we know it.  It is the raw vegetable which we use for curry in our daily cooking.  The Raw Bananas in course of time will ripen on the plant itself and we can prepare Gojju out of the same. I have already put up Deep-fried Raw Bananas, Shallow-fried Raw Bananas, Banana curry (Garlic version, Onion version), Banana Chutney, raw banana in coconut curry, and today I am putting this recipe which is an easy one and also tastes great with rice and rasam. One can either cook it in the cooker or even roast it on fire if convenient which will be much more tastier since the aroma on roasting will be really very pleasant than that with the steamed Banana. So here it is.

What you need to have:

1. Ripe Vegetable Bananas -2

2. Green chilly -3-4 (less spicy)

3. Tamarind pulp  – 1/4 Teaspoon (optional)

4. Curds – 1/2 cup

5. Fresh grated coconut – 2 Tablespoons

6. Salt – As per taste

7. Jaggery  – A small piece (must have)

Ingredients of seasoning:

1. Mustard seeds – 1 Teaspoon

2. Curry leaves – 2 Sprigs

2. On cooling, peel the bananas and squeeze it into small bits. Squeeze green chilly and salt together. If using tamarind, crush it also in the same mix.

3. Adding required quantity of water crush jaggery as well in it.  Bring it to the required consistency by adding water later on add fresh grated coconut and mix well. Transfer it to a serving bowl. (One can add curds instead of tamarind and reduce little water to bring it to the required consistency.)

4. Place a spatula with 2 Teaspoons of cooking oil in on medium flame. On heating add mustard seeds to it. On spluttering add curry leaves and switch off the flame.

5. Season it to the dish and check for salt and jaggery. Squeeze the seasoning into the dish so that the fried mustard flavour is intact in the dish which gives extra flavour to the dish. Ready to serve Banana gojju is as shown in the image below.
