Recipe for Banana Stem Stir fry

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins

Ingredients

  • Banana stem – one large piece around 2 cups of cubes
  • Salt- 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Powdered jaggery- 1 tsp
  • Fresh grated coconut- 4 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/4 tsp
  • Red chillies- 1 nos.

Seasoning ingredients

  • Cooking oil- 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Split black gram lentils-1 tsp
  • Curry leaves- Few

Instructions

Preparation

  • When you buy banana stem from the vegetable shop, you have to prepare the same for cooking by peeling off the stem till you obtain a tender inner core which cannot be peeled further.

Method

  1. Next as you start slicing the stem horizontally in to discs, you will notice lots of fiber clinging to the stem. Remove all the fiber using your fingers and continue chopping. Keep the chopped stem immersed in water.
  2. Next heat a heavy bottom wok, adding all the seasoning ingredients in the order given. As the mustard seeds sizzle and splutter add chopped banana stem cubes. Throw in turmeric powder, jaggery, salt and some water. Let it cook in simmer.
  3. Meanwhile take coconut, mustard seeds and red chilly in a mixer and whip to coarse paste without adding any water. When the banana stem cubes have turned soft, add this coconut plus chilly paste and mix well. Continue cooking for a minute and switch off.
  4. Anti-oxidant rich banana stem stir fry is ready to serve.

Notes

  • Chop the stem in to fine cubes as it has lots of fiber. It would be difficult to chew the large chunks of it.
  • The stir fry is medium spice, you can adjust the red chillies as per your preferences.
  • Skip jaggery if you don’t like even hint of sweetness in the stir fry.
  • This banana stem is said to be very good in removing toxins from body. So use it in your menu at least once in a month.
