Harve Kelen Sukke(Raw Banana Sukka)


Kelen Sukke or the Rw banana Sukka is one of my most favourite dish and something which I have mastered. There are many dishes in Konkani cuisine made out of Raw Banana like the Kelen koddel, kelen Upkari , Kelen phodi and the list goes on.


2 Raw bananas cut into small cubes,
1 cup of grated coconut,
5 fried Byadgi red chillies,
2 tablespoon coriander seeds,
2 teaspoon Urad dal,
1 teaspoon sesame seeds,
A pinch of hing,
1 teaspoon mustard seeds,
1 inch tamarind,
2 teaspoon  jaggery powder,
Salt to taste.
2 tablespoon cooking oil(Preferably coconut oil).


  • Heat 1 tablesspoon of oil in a pressere cooker, add mustard seeds, sesame seeds, urad dal. When the mustard seeds start spluttering add Raw bananas, Salt to taste , jaggery and two cups of water . Pressure cook (4whistles).
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in another pan, add coriander seeds,Urad Dal , sesame seeds, Tamarind, red chillies and  fry for 2 minutes .Add grated coconut and fry for another minute.Close the heat and let the mixture cool.
  • Coarsely grind the above mixture along with a little water (remember we are making Sukke or dry curry so a little water will do)in a grinder.
  • Add the the above, ground mixture to the pressure cooked Raw bananas. Mix well .Heat this for 5 minutes or until water has evaporated to form a dry curry.
  • Serve with Rice and Daalithoy/Saaru
