Use a peeler & remove the skin of the raw banana/vazhakkai. Cut into small pieces & keep aside.

Cut small pieces of coconut using a knife & fry it in a pan.

Soak tamarind in hot water & extract the juice.

Heat oil in a pan splutter mustard & urad dal. Add the raw banana/vazhakkai with required water & let it boil for some time. Then add the tamarind juice & boil it for few minutes. Add the fried coconut, cooked dhal along with required salt, turmeric powder, hing.
