Raw bananas are also called green bananas; they are unripe, have a firm flesh and are less sweet than a ripe banana. Scientifically known as Musa, bananas are one of the most widely grown fruits across the world.
Raw bananas are best suited for cooked applications such as baking, boiling, frying, steaming, stir-frying, and mashing. They can be sun-dried, left in their peel and used in curries and stir-fries, cooked in boiling water for a smooth texture, or used to make dips and chips. In India, Raw bananas are dried and ground into a flour that has a mild, nutty taste, and can be used as a replacement for wheat flour. They are also popularly used in kacche kele ki asharfi, which is Raw banana with capsicum, and in kachori, kebabs, pakore, or poriyals in Southern India. In Kerala, Raw bananas are cooked with yams in coconut milk and are flavored with mustard seeds, and curry leaves to make a soup-like dish called kalan curry. In Bengal, a traditional dish called kanchakalar khosha bata utilizes cooked raw banana peels in a chutney-like dish. Raw bananas pair well with meats such as fish, chicken, pork, and beef, Indian spices such as garam masala, cumin, mustard, and turmeric, zucchini, bell pepper, ginger, garlic, onion, yams, and potatoes.
