Bangalore is capital city of Karnataka. On December 11, 2005, the Government of Karnataka announced that it had accepted the proposal by Jnanpith Award winner U. R. Ananthamurthy to
rename Bangalore to its Kannada name, Bengaluru. On September 27, 2006, the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) passed a resolution to implement the proposed name change, pending approvals from the Government of Karnataka and citizens of the city. On October 7, 2006, the Government of Karnataka accepted this resolution and decided to officially implement the name change on November 1, 2006.

Is it plantain, or the regular banana raw? I didn't know raw banana would cook without adding water. The recipe sounds good. :)

Hello Kajal,

A very nice and simple banana sabji for JFI. I too make this often... this is a very common dish in tamilnadu cuisine. We also add dried red chillies instead of green chillies and some freshly grated coconut at the end.

Bharathy said...

Hi RP,

It is regular raw banana. If your add water than it’s become much soft and this is crispy. I like crispy taste so I cook in this style. Thanks for your nice words. Good day.:)
