Aratikaya Kobbari Pala Koora ~ Plantains In Coconut Gravy

Ingredients :

Chopped Plantain : 1 cup
Coconut Shell : 1
Onion : 1
Warm Water : 2 to 3 cups

Curry Leaves : 1 sprig
A pinch of turmeric powder
Dried Red Chillies : 2
Red Chilli powder : 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Method :

Cut the coconut into medium size pieces and grate it finely in a blender. Now add a cup of warm water to it and grind for 2 minutes. Squeeze out the coconut milk and keep aside. Put the coconut pulp back in the grinder and add the another cup of warm water. Grind for 2 minutes and squeeze out the coconut milk. Repeat the same procedure for remaining warm water. Set the coconut milk aside. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds, chana dal and urad dal and let them splutter. Now add the curry leaves, red chillies and ginger garlic paste and fry for a few minutes. Add the chopped onion and fry for a minute. Then add the chopped plantain, salt, turmeric powder and coconut milk and mix well. Cover with a lid and let it cook completely. When it's done, add the red chilli powder and mix well. Serve with rice or roti.
