Traditional Onam Delicacies: Pazham Puzhingiyathu Pappadum/ Stewed Plantains and Pappadams

Stewed plantians in Indian Jaggery with Pappadums/ Fried Lentil wafers is a tradional Onam breakfast among the extended clan...
Pazham =Plantains/ Bananas, Puzhingiyathu = one that is boiled.
Each family has its own favourite method. Some steam the ripe plantains, others boil them and some stew with jaggery. Some lightly pan-fry the steamed plantains in the leftover oil used to fry the pappadums. The plantains are washed, the skin is left on them and they are cut into 2 inch chunks. They are then stewed with jaggery in soapstone vessels on slow heat while hectic preparations go on for the afternoon feast.
