Vazhakkai (Raw Banana) Puliitta Koottu, a scrumptious stew variety that goes well especially with Thengai Araitha Kuzhambu and other coconut based kuzhambu varieties. I also like to have this yummy dish with rasam and plain rice. Whenever I feel like doing simple menu, I prefer to do this stew and jeera rasam or garlic rasam and its lip-smacking dish.
