KACH KOLAR KHOSHA BATA / PASTE OF PLANTAIN PEEL


Whenever, we use plantain for our dish, generally we forget about the utility of its peels. Plantain peels are very rich in iron and fiber, those are very essential for our body. Other than throwing the peels in garbage bin, lets see, how we can use those peels by making one dish.  When this 'ugly duckling' paste of peels sauted in mustard oil, dried up, it turns in a flavourful palate. So, here is the recipe for 'Kach Kolar Khosha Bata'.

INGREDIENTS:
Peels of 4 medium Plantains (raw banana)
3-4 pods of Garlic (as per taste)
1 small piece of Ginger (1/2")
1/3 tsp Nigella seeds (kalonji)
3-4 Green Chillies (as per taste)
1/2 tsp Sugar
2 tbsps grated Coconut
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Mustard Oil
Salt to taste


METHOD:
Wash the peels nicely.
Pressure cook it upto 1 whistle. Let it cool naturally.
Now, grind plantain peels, garlic, ginger, green chillies and grated coconut together with 1 tbsp water. Make a smooth paste.

Heat mustard oil in a wok. Add nigella seeds in it. After 15-20 seconds, add grinded paste, salt and sugar in it. Fold well. Stir for 4-5 minutes in medium heat, till excess water evaporates. Add lemon juice and remove from heat. Mix nicely.
Serve with hot steamed rice as a side dish.
