Hing 2 pinches
Oil  3 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon
Lemon Juice 3 teaspoons

Salt as needed

Preparation:
1. Peel and chop artikaya or raw banana. Put the raw banana pieces in a bowl of water.  The banana pieces won’t change the color if you put them 
in salt water.
2. Heat a pan or vessel and add water. Transfer the artikaya or raw banana pieces  until the pieces are completely submerged in water. Add turmeric powder and little salt.When they are cooked drain the water and put aside. This takes about 10 minutes.
