raw banana masala coconut curry

 Todays recipe is a Simple easy Raw Banana Masala Curry which goes well along with any indian flat bread or as side dish for plain boiled rice. 
Usually raw banana is one rare veggie i use in my kitchen because we don't get this veggie near my place and we won't eat much. But then when our foodiemonday group decide to take up raw banana challenge, i insisted my hubby to get raw banana from Indian store last week and luckly he got it. Along with raw banana i asked him to get raw mango too to make a recipe from my friend  but then he brought ripen mango...Hopefully some other time i will try my friends tangy banana curry which was yum. But for today i am sharing a simple n spicy south indian style masala recipe.
