 Banana is widely grown in the southern states of India especially Kerala and Tamilnadu. Every part of this tree, right from its fruit, shoot, flowers, and leaves are used in one way or the other. Apart from just the ripe and raw plantains, the plantain flowers are used in making a type of poriyal (dry curry) in Tamil Nadu or Thoran in Kerala which is a delicacy to relish. The cylindrical shaped soft shoot of the plantain tree commonly called as plantain shoot is used in preparing delicious and mouth-watering salads. It is also used in making dry or wet curry adding coconut or yogurt along with spices.

 Green raw plantains are used for preparing a variety of sweet and salted chips. Plantain chips are a huge industry in the state of Kerala. Chips or Fritters, are the most popular snack item made out of the plantains. The banana chips are fried in coconut oil and sprinkled with salt which is commonly known as upperi or kaya varuthathu. They are important accompaniments served during any festive feast. Unripe plantains are firm and starchy. They are low in sugar content than the ripe ones.

 They are also low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are good sources of vitamins, minerals and potassium and rich in vitamin C. Peppery Plantain is a very simple yet delicious, healthy dish infused with an amalgamation of fantastic flavours that enhances this bland starchy vegetable. This dish goes superbly good to eat with hot rice, roti, chapatti etc. The fresh pepper corns add an excellent zest and warmth to the recipe. Do try and enjoy making this dish.
