4 Raw Bananas (medium size)
5 cups of water

Hing as required
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
4 tsp of boiled rice
3 tsp of toor dhal
3 tsp of bengal gram

Slice the raw banana in to two halves without peeling the skin off and allow it to cook for about 10 mns in water with no salt.
remove from the stove,drain the water, peel the skin off and keep aside.
The bananas should be half cooked and firm and not mushy as this will render them impossible to be grated.
Grate the half cooked banans and spread them on a plate. Sprinkle salt and hing and allow to settle.
Roast the boiled rice, toor dhal, bengal gram, red chilies and the curry leaves and grind to a coarse powder in the mixer.
In a pan, add 2 spoons of oil, mustard seeds, urad dhal, curry leaves and hing and then the grated raw banana.
Add the roasted ground powder, mix well and serve hot with rassam saadham.
