What I did:
  • Pressure cook the plantains in a pressure cooker for upto 3 whistles.
  • When cooled, peel of the skin and mash them with a potato masher.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan on medium flame, add the tadka ingredients (Inguva, red chillies, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal).
  • Toss for a minute and add green chillies.
  • Saute till the green chillies are well fried and add the mashed plantain.

  • Cook for 2 or 3 minutes.  Adjust salt if needed and switch off the stove.
  • Mix in lemon juice and serve with white rice.
