The best way how to prepare Easy Cooked Green Banana Curry is the Indian style!

Are fried green bananas good for you?

They taste as good as any fast-food French fries and are healthier. Green bananas are the healthiest because they have all their vitamins whereas ripe ones lose most of them because they’re too ripe. Green bananas do not have a strong banana flavor at all. It’s very deceptive and very healthy.

What happens if you boil a banana and drink the water?

Banana tea is made from bananas, hot water, and sometimes cinnamon or honey. It provides antioxidants, potassium, and magnesium, which may support heart health, aid sleep, and prevent bloating

  1. I’ve been using green banana flour in bakes and have a tea with the banana peel every night but I never would have thought about using it in curries! That’s such a great idea!

  2. When we were children, we were told we shouldn’t eat green bananas because they’d give us tummy ache. So I always wait for my bananas to turn yellow before eating them. You learn something new every day!
    I’m totally going to make this banana curry some day. It sounds delicious. Not just yet, as we’re in the middle of a heatwave and I’m only able for salads! I’ll let you know how it goes Esme.

    • Hi Gloria, WOW that will be awesome if you can test this out and if possible give this recipe a rating and a review. Hope you enjoy your salads and the heatwave not overly bad. We had one about 2-3 weeks ago and had temps up to 44C not fun.
