Nenthrapazham Pulissery / Ripe Banana in Buttermilk Gravy

This is one of easiest recipe which i used to make it in a jiff whenever i feel bored with the regular sambar etc.,. This recipe has been passed to me from my mom. She used to make varieties of buttermilk gravies with different veggies,especially during the summer season. I like the nentharapazham pulissery which she makes .

This gravy should be a bit thick and tastes great the next day . The sweetness of banana and the sour curd blends well and makes the gravy simply delight. It's mild and serves a great accompaniment with rice along with some spicy veggies.
