Raw banana Olan

When seeing raw bananas while going for a shopping my hubby always ask me to take some raw banana.Olan is is one of his favourate dish.I got some raw banana from the person who came from kannur.So I decided to make olan.
Olan is the simplest and a unique dish of Kerala with no spice at all in it(except green chillies, which is optional) flavoured with coconut milk and coconut oil and fresh curry leaves. Yet, when made with the right ingredients in the right proportion, it tastes heavenly. Olan can also be made in other method.But I hope the people over kannur makes this way.

Ingredients:
Raw banana :2
Ash gourd(winter melon) :100 gms
Bean:4
Green chillies:3
Curry leaves: few
Thin coconut milk:1 1/2 cup
Thick coconut milk:1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Coconut oil : 2 tsps.


Direction:
Slice raw banana in round shape. Cook along with Ash gourd,beans, Green chillies,salt and Thin coconut milk.when they are cooked add Thick coconut milk.And remove from the fire and put some Curry leaves and Coconut oil and close the led.
