How to make Kelyachi Bhaji Recipe (Raw Banana Stir Fry)
To begin making the Kelyachi Bhaji Recipe (Raw Banana Stir Fry), first wash the raw banana, apply little oil to your hands and peel the banana using a peeler and cut the banana into dices. By applying oil in your hands, the stickiness from the raw banana will not come onto your hands.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a heavy bottomed wok/ kadai on medium heat. Add the onions and cook them until soft. Once the onions have softened, add the raw banana, sprinkle some salt and water. Cover the pan and cook on low to medium heat until the bananas have cooked through.
Once the bananas have cooked through, add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, asafoetida powder and the grated coconut. Stir well for another 3 to 4 minutes until all the ingredients get well incorporated into the sabzi.
Once done, turn off the heat and transfer to a serving bowl.
