Vazhaikkai Puttu / Podimas

This is different from the regular poriyal we make from raw bananas. It is easy to make and tastes different too.The crunchiness of onions and the softness of banana together is delicious. Its white colour makes it a favourite with the kids too. It is a good combo with rice and sambhar.
