Aratikaya Vepudu (Deep fry Plantain)


Plantain 2 (pealed and diced into ½ inch cubes)
Oil to deep fry
Dry coconut 1 ½ cup
Garlic 5-6 cloves
Coriander powder (dhania powder) ½ cup
Fresh coriander ¼ bunch (Roughly chopped)
Red chili powder 1 ½ (less or more to your taste)
Salt to taste

  1. Take coconut powder, coriander powder, fresh coriander, garlic, salt and red chili powder into a grinder and make a powder together. This mixture will be little wet because of raw garlic and fresh coriander.
  2. Put 4-5 tsp of oil in a wide pan.
  3. Once the oil is hot enough add the grinded powder from step 1 and roast it on very low flame till it dries out.
  4. On the other hand, heat enough oil to deep fry in a deep frying pan.
  5. Once the oil reaches the frying temperature, fry the plantain cubes till they are crunchy, crispy and golden brown.
  6. Finally add crispy plantain bites to the powder from step 3, mix it well and store in a air tight container.

    Enjoy it with hot rice and ghee.
