Vazhakkai Podimas/ Raw Banana Podimas

Vazhakkai /raw plantain is a regular vegetable at every Indian home., The ponthan variety of vazhakkai is usually used for this and it gives the best results.( The ponthan variety is generally used for making bajjis)..  It`s a very healthy preparation ,as it basically cooks the raw bananas in water until they are half done, grates them and completes spicing it up on the kadai. Easy, healthy and of course quick. I always prepare this Podimas in Ammavasai days. Though the preparation of Podimas is simple, the taste is marvelous.
