  • Unripe/raw banana- 300 gm
  • Oil- 2 tbsp.
  • Mustard seeds- ¼ tsp.
  • Curry leaves- 6-7
  • Asafoetida/hing- a pinch
  • Red chilli powder- ½ tsp.
  • Coriander powder- ½ tsp.
  • Turmeric powder- ¼ tsp.
  • Fresh coriander leaves- 1 tbsp. (finely chopped)
  • Salt- as per taste


  1.  Rinse the raw bananas and peel them.
  2.  Slice the bananas in thin rounds in a bowl filled with salt water. The salt water will prevent the bananas from getting brown.
  3.  Now heat some oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds to the hot oil and let them crackle.
  4.  Add the curry leaves and the asafoetida to the oil and stir.
  5.  Add the coriander powder, turmeric and chilli powder to the oil and sauté for a few seconds.
  6.  Now take out the bananas from the water and put them on a kitchen towel. Let the excess water get soaked in the kitchen towel.
  7.  Add the banana slice to the pan and stir really well.
  8.  Let the banana cook on a low flame. Spread the banana slices in the pan to ensure even cooking. Do not cover the pan with a lid.
  9.  Keep stirring the banana slices at a regular interval. We need the banana slices to get crispy and crunchy.
  10.  When the bananas are done the cooking, add the salt and mix well.
  11.  Finish off by adding fresh chopped coriander.
  12.  If you want a slight tang in the dish you can also add some lemon juice to the banana stir fry as well.
  13.  Serve the stir fried banana on its own or with roti or paratha.
