Vazhaikkai Poriyal | Raw Banana (Plantain) Poriyal

Vazhaikkai (Plantain) Poriyal can be prepared in many different methods. It is a vegetable that can be used for most of us during fasting. It is included in our diet after the fasting is over. It is helpful in boosting the immune system and regulate digestion. We prepare plantain puttu or plantain poriyal or aviyal during fasting and other important days like Pournami, Shasti and Ammavasa.

Unlike my other poriyal dishes, vazhaikkai poriyal also is prepared using the same technique. What I liked about the poriyal dishes with plantain or potato was the added cumin, garlic and coconut mixture flavour the plantain. The flavours from garlic and cumin give a nice taste to the soft plantain cubes. During fasting, leave the garlic cloves and onions. This poriyal is a good side dish for any kuzhambu or rice varieties.
