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!
