Thank you friends for your lovely comments.

Dear Saraswathi

In podimas of aloo/raw banana, generally people add fresh coconut grating at the end and cook for another one minute to get good taste. Also one pinch of hing (asafoetita) is added alongwith pepper and salt for flavour and to get rid of gas problems which aloo and banana contain
