ABOUT Raw Plantain Pepper Curry RECIPE

This is an age-old recipe, which we used to enjoy during our childhood. Usually, my paternal aunt used to make this curry by using the small variety of banana. This curry is prepared using a little bit of toor dal and a good amount of pepper for heat. Plantain pepper curry is tangy, spicy and little bit sweet all at the same time. This curry goes along with plain rice with a dollop of ghee or clarified butter.
