What is surti raw banana, kerala banana, banana for yellow chips?

Surti raw banana is a fruit of the banana tree, at the stage before ripening. It is native to the Indian subcontinent, especially South India. India is, incidentally, one of the highest exporters of bananas.

Surti raw bananas have a hard, green peel, and a slightly yellowish flesh inside. They are thicker than normal raw bananas, and longer as well. The peel too is thick and needs to be cut using a knife or peeler.
They are not easily available at vegetable shops, and you need to inform the vendor in advance if you need some.
