    How to Cook Raw Banana Fry/ Vazhaikai varuval/ Aratikaya Vepudu

    Step 1: Peel off the outer skin of green banana and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
    Step 2: Add the cut pieces to water to prevent them from changing color
    Step 3: Heat a wide pan and add oil to it. Drain the water and add the raw banana pieces to the pan.
    Step 4: Mix well so that all the pieces are coated with oil. By doing this, the pieces won't stick to the bottom of the pan
    Step 5: cover and cook for 5 minutes.This makes the pieces soft. Do not over cook, they may turn mushy
    Step 6: After 5 minutes, Saute for 10 to 15 minutes without covering till crispy. stir in between
    Step 7: When the raw banana pieces are almost done, add onion. Saute for 10 more minutes till onions are cooked.
    Step 8: when the onions are soft add the spices. Add red chili powder, salt, cumin powder and coriander powder. Mix well

    Tip : Onion cooks faster than raw banana. so, Add onion towards the end. This keeps the onions slightly crunchy. If they are added at the beginning, they get burnt.
