I love to make dishes like this, i have one version of this using potatoes. These dry curry are so flavourful and mild, which is a perfect sidedish with any spicy curries. I made my favorite karakulambu to serve with this.
I used my rice cooker, to steam the banana for this. Many people raise me questions to show recipes which uses rice cooker and what all stuff we can do in a rice cooker.
This is what i do, i have a steamer basket which came along with my rice cooker. I use that to steam veggies when i am cooking rice in that. So two job get done in one time.
