"The original version of this recipe wasn't healthy. It called for frying a whole chicken, then adding more oil, but I was intrigued by the combination of bananas, curry and chicken. So I came up with this low-fat version, which goes great with sourdough bread. The trick is to use very firm, almost green bananas, and not to overcook them." --CL Reader
