My friend Pradnya suggested this making raw banana also green banana in the US fried sticks and making a sauce of all the other ingredients.

I would have loved to grill paneer or tofu in garlic sauce. Since I had not verbalised the idea to hubby he had not brought paneer or tofu.

The main ingredients are chickpeas, mushroom, raw banana, star anise and kokum.  I have used button mushrooms here but oyster mushrooms will be delicious.

This dish looks very beautiful so in case you have a sit-down dinner with a few friends then this is an ideal salad. We had it as a side dish with roti.

So let us get down to the recipe

Notes

  • The vegetable I made had no liquids in case you desire the liquid cook on low flame and keep the dish covered till needed.
  • Since we find the aroma of star anise strong I have used only one piece and added it in the end. You can adjust as per your taste.
  • The kokum sauce could do with a little thickening. Use besan or chickpea flour for a protein-rich sauce or use cornflour.
