Vazhakai Thogayal ( Raw Banana Thogayal)

Last week when I went to one of our friends home, she made this thugayal for lunch. That was the first time I ever heard of a thugayal using raw banana, It was so yummy and I had to get the recipe from her and made it at home .
1 Small Raw Banana
1 Clove Garlic
1 Tsp Cumin seeds
1 Tsp Tamarind paste
5 Nos Green chillies
1 Tsp Channa dal
2 Tsp Urad dal
2 Tbsp Curd
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 No dry red chilly
1 sprig curry leaves
2 Tbsp oil
salt to taste.
Cut the banana into half, boil in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles and let it cool.
Heat 1 tbsp oil and roast green chillies,cumin seeds,channa dal and 1 tsp urad dal.
Chop the cooled banana.
Grind the roasted ingredients along with garlic, salt, tamarind, curd and chopped banana.
Add water if necessary.
Heat oil in a kadai and add the red chilly, curry leaves, remaining urad dal and mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds pop, pour the oil over the ground raw banana thugayal.
Serve the thugayal with rice.
