Harven Kelen Koddel(Raw banana curry)


Harven kelen is nothing but raw bananas and are used in konkani dishes like harve kelen sukke, harve kelen upkari ,harven kelen baje/Phodi, and so many other dishes. One such recipe is Harven kelen Koddel which I will be presenting now.Among other koddel recipes like kulta koddel, bagade koddel and so on, kelen koddel in my view is the most tastiest.This dish is best served with rice and can also be had with chapathi.

2 cups of harve kelen ,cut into medium sized cubes, boiled with a pinch of turmrric
1 cup of scraped coconut.
3 fried byadgi red chillies,
An inch of tamarind.
For seasoning,
1 full Garlic pod(some 10 cloves or more if you like),
1 tablespoon of cooking oil.

Step1: Grind together scraped coconut,red chilles and tamarind to make a fine paste.
Step2: Take a round bottom vessel, add the cooked raw bananas and the ground paste.Add some water if the mixture is too thick.Boil this for around 15 minutes.Keep stirring from time to time so that it doesnot burn.
Step3: Meanwhile heat a seasoning pan, add cooking oil,crushed garlic. Fry until golden brown.
Step4:Add the seasoning to the boiling Kelen koddel.Switch off the heat .

Serve hot with rice and lonche.
