What You need
Plantain peel: 1 cup
Cumin powder: 1 teaspoon
Pepper powder: ¼ teaspoon
Turmeric powder: ⅛ teaspoon
Salt: ½ teaspoon
Curry leaves; 1 sprig( About 10 leaves)
Oil: 1 tablespoon (I used olive oil, use coconut oil for authentic taste)
How I made
Wash the plantain peel and cut into 2 inch long strips. Set aside.
In a skillet heat oil and add plantain peels along with salt and turmeric. Close the lid and let them cook in slow flame for about 10 minutes or until they are done but not mushy. Stir in between to prevent them from sticking to bottom of the skillet.
Add pepper powder and curry leaves and stir everything for one minute or until the spices coated uniformly in all plantain peel pieces. Switch off the flame.
Enjoy with rice and a curry.
