Plantain Fry | Vazhakkai Fry | Vazhaikkai Fry Recipe

Vazhaikkai Fry
A tasty and spicy fry!
In no time, you can cook this fry. It just takes a matter of few minutes. My family and friends’ kids just love this. How much ever you have, this Plantain Fry will not be enough. I make it using potatoes, yam, colocasia(seppa kizhangu) etc.
Sometimes I use a pinch of color depending on my mood. Kids generally love this fry a lot. If I have a large number of guests, then I choose plantain poriyal because this fry will never be enough. Give it a try and you’ll know.
