How to Make Nenthra Kaya Mezhukkupuratti

  • Peel and slice plantain into 2 inch by 1/2inch batons. Immerse in water to avoid it from blackening.
  • Clean and slit the green chillies lengthwise, de-seed if so required.
  • Heat oil and deep fry on low flame, turning over occasionally, for 15-20 mins.
  • To lessen the use of oil, boil plantain in water for 10mins. Now transfer to a pan in which the oil is hot, stir occasionally.
  • While you are frying in oil add the remaining ingredients one by one, as and when you wish, allow to cook on low flame to achieve a crisp and crunchy texture.
