  2. Add the raw bananas/vazhakkai once the vendakkai is half done and stir well till the sliminess of the vendakkai disappears. Make sure you stir lightly just to avoid burning and avoid them getting any mushy or breaking. Keep them aside.

  3. Also meanwhile in a mixer grinder, grind all the ingredients mentioned under "to be ground". Once the mixture is crumbly, add water and grind further till it becomes paste-like.

  7. Meanwhile in a tadka pan, add oil. To this, add mustard seeds and allow to crackle. Once the mustard crackles, add asafoetida, curry leaves and dried red chillies, stir and switch off heat.

  8. When the butter milk starts to froth up from the edges of the pan, add the tempering and turn off the flame. Do not boil after adding the butter milk.
