How to make the podimas
wash and chop the plantain into half. Pressure cook with enough water. Once the pressure falls, peel off the skin.
Grate the plantain or mash.
Heat a non stick pan with oil. Temper with mustard, Urad Dal, curry leaves, hing and slit red chilies. Saute well.
Grind coconut with red chilies to a smooth powder. Add this to the pan.
Saute well till the coconut is cooked well. This takes about 2 to 3 mins. Now add the cooked plantain. Add salt, turmeric powder and sprinkle some water. Cover with lid and cook for 5 to 7 mins.
The coconut can be roasted along with channa dal and ground. That will make it even more rich.
