Vazhakkay Eriseri/ Plantain Fry with roasted coconut

I tasted this in a friend's house. The very next day I wanted to try this out as 2 plantains were sleeping in my fridge for a long time. To my bad luck, I was running out of couple of other main ingredients(green chillies and fresh coconut) for the recipe. But was not having the patience to go to the store and getting things. So just proceeded with the alternatives and guess what?? It turned out to be really tasty. I know this may not be the proper "eriseri" but still it tastes awesome. :)

Raw Plantain -2
Red chillies-3
Coconut -1cup
Cumin Seeds-1teaspoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspon
Urad dhal-1teaspoon
Curry leaves
Pepper Powder-1teaspoon
Turmeric Powder-1/4teaspoon
Peel the skin and chop the plantains into small pieces. Keep them in water till you use them.
Combine the plantains,pepper and turmeric powder,salt with enough water and cook till the veggie becomes soft but not mushy.
Grind 1/2cup of coconut with red chillies and cumin to a coarse powder.

Heat oil(preferably coconut oil) in a pan,make the tempering with mustard seeds-urad dhal and currry leaves. Then add the coconut+cumin+chilli powder, cook for a minute or two.

Drain the excess water(if any) from the plantain and add it..
In a separate pan, roast the remaining coconut till it becomes brown. Add the roasted coconut to the plantains and mix well.
Cook on low heat for a minute and switch off the stove.

Vazhakkay eriseri is ready! It goes well with all rice varieties.
