My beloved mom used to make this sweet plantain curry every Eid for breakfast along with Puttu. She got this recipe from my paternal grandma . She kept the century old tradition after she got married and now we are following her. The first thing that I would do when I get home from Eid prayer, is to chill some of these sweet curry and share with my cousins while waiting for the palakkadan delicious biriyani.
