Aratikaya upma curry/raw banana upma curry

Aratikaya upma curry is another daily curry made in Telugu homes.

Preparation time: 20 – 25 mins

Serves: 2


Raw bananas (aratikaya) 4
Ginger (allam) 50 g (1/4th inch)
Green chillies 6
Refined cooking oil 1 tbsp
Black gram (urad dal/uddipappu) 1 tsp

Cumin seeds (jeera/jeelakarra) 1 tsp

Mustard seeds (rai/avalu) 1 tsp

Red chillies 4

Curry leaves 4 – 5

Pinch of asafoetida (hing/inguva)

Salt to taste


Clean and peel bananas. Chop into small pieces and boil. Alternatively pressure cook to 1 whistle. Set aside.

Blend to a fine paste the green chillies and ginger.

In a kadai/pan (Bandli/mookudu), heat oil and add red chillies and mustard seeds.

As the mustard seeds pop add black gram, cumin seeds, curry leaves and a pinch of asafoetida.

To the seasoning add the boiled banana, ginger chilly paste, salt to taste and mix well to evenly spice the curry. Cook for around 5 mins.

Aratikaya upma curry or raw banana upma curry is basically a rice supplement but makes a great combo with rotis and pooris too.
