Curd 1 cup
Salt to taste

For seasoning

Oil 1tbsp
Udad dal 1/4 tsp
Rai 1/4 tsp
Red chillies 2 nos
Curry leaves few


Cut banana into 3 pcs and boil until soft.Drain water and peel the skin.Cut them into small pieces.
Take 1/2 tsp oil and fry green chillies.Remove them and in the same oil fry the cooked banana for 4-5 minutes.
Once cool grind green chillies,banana and salt into smooth paste,preferably in stone mortar and pestle.Lastly add curd and mix well with a spoon.

In a small kadai take the remaining oil.When hot add the rai,udad dal,red chillies and curry leaves.When udad dal turns light brown colour add it to the chuntey.
