How to make Palakkad Vaazhakka Molakushyam

  1. Cook the raw banana with turmeric powder, green chilli, jaggery, half of the curry leaves, salt, and enough water in a kadai.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the dal with enough water in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles and mash it well. Set this aside.
  3. When the raw banana mix starts to boil, add the pepper powder and again cook till the banana is well cooked.
  4. Now, add the moongdal and mix very well.
  5. When the mix slightly thickens, add the crushed pepper, remaining curry leaves, and finally pour the coconut oil, mix and switch off the stove.

My Tip:

Instead of raw banana, you can use yam/pumpkin/flat beans/cucumber/snake gourd/a combo of these.
