Baalekai Paladya (Raw Banana Curry)

Hey folks, hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was good too... Finally made time to wach 'Happy Feet' and we thoroughly enjoyed it. As much as we enjoyed the first part, the ending was really touchy. If you still haven't watched it, I insist you go watch it right away. I'm sure you'll love it :-).
Anyway, coming back to our recipes, Paladya is another karnataka speciality dish....It is commonly made in the Sirsi/Sagar parts of Karnataka. Its fast, delicious and easy to make. Thanks to my friend Sangeeta for having shared this lovely recipe with me. I have used raw banana here. But Paladya can also be made with okra(lady's finger) or thondekai.


1 Raw Banana
1 cup Grated Coconut
1 tbsp Coriander seeds
1 tbsp Jeera seeds
2 tsp Mustard seeds
1 cup Curd
A pinch of haldi
2-3 Green Chillies
3-4 Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil
A pinch of hing
salt as per taste


  1. Peel and chop raw bananas into 1" cubes. Boil in salt water until the raw banana is completely cooked.

  2. Grind coconut, Jeera, coriander seeds, green chillies and 1 tsp mustard seeds into a smooth paste.

  3. Add the paste to the cooked raw banana pieces and boil well.

  4. Remove from stove; Add salt, curds and mix well.

  5. For seasoning, heat oil in a wok. add mustard seeds.

  6. Add curry leaves and hing after the seeds splutter.

  7. Serve hot with rice and enjoi!
