Raw banana - 1
Brinjal(Long slender ones - green or violet) - 1
Tamarind - gooseberry sized ball
Salt - to taste
Tumeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Rice - 2 tbsp
Red chilli - 3-4
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp

Roast red chillies and rice till lightly browned without oil. Grind into fine powder once cooled.
Chop raw bananas and brinjals into 2" long pieces.(I didnt have brinjals, but it provides little mushiness to the curry).
Soak tamarind ball in luke warm water for 5-10 mins. Extract the juice and keep aside.
Cook banana pieces with salt and tumeric powder in tamarind juice. Add little more water if necessary.
As the bananas are half done, add brinjal pieces and continue cooking.
Once vegeatables are done and 80 percent of moisture is absorbed, add rice-red chilli powder. Mix well so that all the vegetables are coated in this powder.
Heat oil in a pan and season urad dal and mustard seeds. Add seasonings to curry.
Serve with plain white rice and any kootu of choice.
