The rice cooked with spices and vegetables is called as Vegetable Pulao. This is one of the most liked rice varieties and loved by everyone especially the children. I have used the electric cooker to make this which simplifies the preparation of Pulao. It just took 15 minutes for preparation and 15 minutes for cooking. The aroma of the spices are wonderful which will last in the house for at least 2 hours.

I love Nendram Pazham (Ripe Plantains). Malayali's make yummy recipes out of Nendram pazham and one of the simplest recipe is given below. We make this often as this is being loved by all from kids to elders. Here we cook the banana which makes the digestion quicker and serve with Jaggery syrup which is adding more taste and sweetness to the banana.

Nendram Pazham with Jaggery (Ripe Plantains in Jaggery syrup)Ingredients

Nendram Pazham (Ripe Plantains) 2
Grated Jaggery3 table spoon
Ghee1 teaspoon

Method :
  • Remove the banana skin and slice the banana into smaller pieces.
  • Heat the pan and add one cup of water. Add the sliced bananas and allow them to cook in the simmer for about 5 mins.
  • After 5 mins, check if the banana is cooked well. Then add the grated jaggery. Add little water (mostly its not required) if the jaggery-banana mix is too thick. Keep the flame in simmer
  • In 2 to 3 mins the jaggery get dissolved in the water and mixed with the banana.
  • Add one teaspoon of Ghee.
  • Remove it from flame and serve.
Note : You can use Honey instead of Jaggery. In that case, cook the banana and remove it from flame. Top up the banana with the Honey and serve.

Ennai Kathirikai kuzhambu is a traditional and conventional kuzhambu in Tamilnadu.  This kuzhambu requires little patience as it requires the preparation of ground paste, frying and finally to make the gravy. But the taste would be awesome. Even the brinjal 'haters' would love this kuzhambu. When you want to make an authentic dish for a change and to impress your family, you may want to try this.
