So interesting - just a question about the raw banana - is it green? I had a banana tree in the backyard of the place I stayed at this summer and am wondering how green is too green.

Thanks everybody for your lovely comments..

@Jeanette: You will find them at any Indian grocery stores, they specially are cooking bananas, not the regular yellow bananas which are green before they are ripe. They are smaller than plantains and dark green in color..
