cooking time 30 mints || cuisine :Andhra || serves 4 persons

Aratikaya iguru is very tasty goes well with rice and rotis..its easy..simple and quickly made curry...with this plantain curry v can make two is the curry with the inner part of plantain and chetni with the skin of plantain...this Aratikaya iguru is similar to bangaladumpa iguru....

plantains(aratikayalu) 4
onion 1
green chilies 4
curry leaves
For Tadka/Talimpu/Seasoning:-
oil 3 tspns
crushed garlic cloves 3
redchillies 3
chana dal 1/2 tspn
urad dal 1/2 tspn
mustard seeds 1/2 tspn
cumin seeds 1/2 tspn
turmeric powder
chilli powder
salt to taste

Cut the plantains to three pieces ..and pressure cook them till one whistle..add little salt while cooking so that the pieces absorb salt...let it cool down and remove the skin..
now cut the cooked plantain pieces into small cubes....
cut the onions  and green chillies into long slices..
Now heat the kadai with oil ..when the oil is hot enough reduce the flame to sim and add crushed garlic cloves to it and sauté it till the garlic turn slight brown in color( do not let garlic burn) add chana dal,urad dal,mustard seeds, cumin  seeds, red chilies(make single cut to red chillies) and sauté till the mustard add  chopped onions,green chillies and curry leaves..sauté for 5 covering the lid.. now add salt,turmeric powder and red chilli powder to onions (if we add salt,turmeric and chilli powder in tadka will spread evenly to the vegetable when added)..stir them well and add plantain slices....and stir them not mash we added everything like turmeric ,salt and chilli powder in tadka itself...they will stick well to the pieces along with the cover the lid and let it cook for 10 that the vegetable absorbs the spices...stir the curry carefully in the middle...all the cooking should be in low flame only...
cooking tips:-
if  the plantain pieces are over cooked or...while stirring the curry if u mash the will become like dough and absorbs more oil..
masala lovers can add ginger garlic paste when the onions are fried and before adding the salt,turmeric and chilli powder..and when the curry is almost done sprinkle the garam masala powder on the curry...

    hey cooking plantain before adding them in curry is dumb, they cook real quick just cut them into cubes , make sure you put cubes in water as you don’t want them to turn dark. after adding in curry add , some milk and water and voila.. its done
