About Raw Banana Curry with Green Peas Recipe

Turn this humble veggie into an absolutely delicious and appetizing curry. I kept it dry to be had with any Indian bread. The addition of the aromatic Andhra spice (kura karam podi) adds a distinct flavour to this preparation. You can substitute it with sambar / rasam powder. That will give a punch to the dish. It can also be relished as a side dish with either curd-rice, sambar-rice or a simple dal/kadhi-chawal. Do add some lime juice for a tangy flavour.
