Vazhaikkai Varuval | Raw Banana Fry | Vazhaikkai Recipes | Side dishes for Rice

Raw banana fry

Vaazhaikai Varuval or Raw banana fry is my hubby all time favorite varuval. He always buys this vaazhaikkai and asks me to prepare this. Since I got bored of preparing this, I used to buy vegetables and stopped him from buying this veggie. But can't stop for a long time right.... He he he... He started buying this again and last week prepared the vazhaikkai varuval and captured for this post. Also there are many methods to prepare this veggie and this is the simplest one. Will see the variations for this varuval in the coming posts.
