Banana Peel Thoran Recipe | Vazhakkai Thol Poriyal Recipe

Banana Peel Thoran, vazhakkai thol poriyal, kaaya tholi thoran, kele ka chilka sabzi is raw banana or plantain skin thoran (stir fry) with simple spices and coconut in Kerala style. Yes we are using only the skin of banana and not the banana by itself, this recipe is very good best of waste recipe and does makes delicious side with rasam/sambar rice and of course not throwing the peel is added benefit indeed :)

I recently started making this banana peel thoran or poriyal normally I never waste ridge gourd skin of which I make Thogayal and bottle gourd peel which goes in making delicious chutney too and lot of people use even pointed gourd (parwal) skin to make stir fry or chutney, my SIL mother-in-law does that, though I am yet to try parwal peel, any ways we talking about banana peel today so let's focus on that. Since I used 2 large plantain to make the stir fry or varuval I used 2 banana peel here which serves for 2, you can make this in large quantity if you have that much of banana peel :)


For weekend lunch I made turai sambar, of course the peerkangai thol thogayal, vazhakkai varuval and the peel used for this poriyal, paruppu rasam. Now a days am doing full tamil or south indian lunch menus a lot for some unknown reason and it's very good thing :) So next time don't throw away the banana peel but instead try this delicious thoran/poriyal or stir fry.
