raw banana curd chutney recipe

while the recipe is extremely simple, but i would like to highlight few tips and suggestions for banana chutney recipe. firstly, always use raw and green banana for this pachadi recipe. i would not even  recommend slightly yellowish banana as it would introduce sweetness to chutney. secondly, i have added finely chopped onions to pachadi. adding onions is completely optional and it would taste great even without it. lastly, i have used pressure cooker to cook raw banana, however even microwave can be used to cook it. perhaps 8-10 mins should be sufficient.

finally, i would request you to check my other chutney recipes collection from my blog. particularly, tomato chutney, coconut chutney, onion tomato chutney, capsicum chutney, pudina chutney, potlakaya chutney and sweet potato chutney. in addition, do visit my other recipes collection like,
