Kachhe Kele Ki Sabzi | Plantain Stir Fry Recipe

Raw Plantain is one veggie that makes rare appearance at our place and most of the time I do simple shallow fry.   This recipe is from my sis again and yes it's very simple and quick too.  Over to the recipe now :)

Serves - 4

Raw Plantain/Kachha Kela - 2
Oil - 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garlic Pods - 2 [crushed]
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Salt - to taste


1. Wash, peel and chop plantain and boil in water in high flame for 5 minutes or until cooked and not overcooked.

2. Use a strainer to drain the water from cooked plantain and let it stand for 2 minutes for all the water to escape.  Add salt, chili and coriander powders to plantain pieces and mix gently.

3. In a pan heat oil add cumin, mustard seeds and allow them to crack.  Add curry leaves, crushed garlic and saute until golden brown.

4. Add spice mixed plantain pieces, stir gently and cook for 3-4 minutes in open fire on medium flame, stir in intervals.

Serve with roti/paratha or dal/sambar rice.
