There are two things that no true blue Mallu will waste - coconut and plantain. Every single part of these two plants and fruits is put to good use. While most people use plantains and throw away the peels, we use the peels to make this simple yet tasty stir fry. Even kids who run away at the mention of veggies will love this for its taste and non-spiciness.
What you need:
Plantain peels - as many as required
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Freshly scraped coconut - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Split urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Wash the plantain peels well. Discard the top and the tail end of the peels and discolored parts, if any. Chop the peels into tiny pieces. Cook in the pressure cooker or microwave for 8 minutes or until well cooked.
Heat oil in a kadai. Add mustard seeds and urad dal. When the seeds pop, add the cooked peels, turmeric powder and salt. Stir well. Add the scraped coconut. Mix well and remove from heat.
