  16. Hey Hari. This looks delish! I really wish I could try this. We used to get raw bananas aplenty when in Bangalore, but out here it is more seasonal.
    Raw bananas are safe for diabetics as they have a lot less starch compared to ripe bananas. However, I wondered if I could make it without using jaggery? Would it affect the taste too much?
    Great picture!

  32. I love ur recipe...but I found an exact same recipe copied word by word including the image on http://shantipavbhaji.blogspot.com/2011/03/roasted-raw-banana-curry.html.

    He seemed to have copied Bread Jamuns, Homemade Potato Chips,Bell Pepper Halwa...check for others.

    This guy copied recipes from my blog as well.

    I have already filed a complaint at http://www.google.com/support/bin/request.py?contact_type=lr_dmca&product=blogger

    I think u should do the same, so that copy cats like these are blocked.

    Cheers and Happy Blogging
