Vazhakkai varuval / raw banana fry

Vazhakkai varuval is a one of the simplest south Indian side dish. It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare this delicious side dish. This fry goes well with rasam rice, curd rice or any rice varieties. I have just fried it in iron pan with very less oil and it doesn’t require much oil to get cooked. I have prepared this as a side dish for rice along with easy tomato rasam. Let’s see how to make this varuval with raw banana.
