  • “I accidentally bought green bananas and was looking for a way to use them.When I saw this recipe I thought it looked okay but didn’t have high expectations.I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it turned out! It was relatively simple to prepare.The hardest part was peeling the bananas.If you like curries this should be a staple recipe.Two changes I made was a I added a Maharaja curry blend instead of the tumeric and during the last few minutes of cooking I added some green peas.Simply delicious!”
