  1. Peel off the raw plantain and cut into roundels around 4-5mm in thickness. Add sambar powder, salt, turmeric powder and tamarind paste. Add 1 or 2 tsp of water if needed and rub the spices in. Let this marinate for 10-15 mins at the least.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a thick bottomed flat pan or cast iron pan and add 1 tbsp oil. As the oil becomes hot, reduce the flame to low and place the marinated plantain slices on the pan. Cook on each side for 4-5 mins.
