I love to eat all the vegetables. But Sendhil & Raksha run miles away when i prepare certain dishes using some vegetables..One such vegetable is banana stem / vazhaithandu. I have to think a lot before cooking these vegetables as how to make the dish appealing and make them eat. Last time when i went to salem my FIL bought me a tender banana stem.. When i was hitting my mind to try something new , my neighbour suggested this recipe.I tried it keeping my fingers crossed .To my surprise , sen said this is the second best recipe among the vazhaithandu dishes..I asked , which is the first one then ? He said its Vazhaithandu juice .. I must thank my neighbour for teaching me such a quick , easy n tasty dish. I started making this very often as this became my hubby’s favourite and an easy to prepare dish for me .There is no need to cook the banana stem.It has a crunchy taste.So this recipe can be made instantly.Only the cutting part takes some time.I used to cut it the previous day night & keep them immersed in buttermilk & refrigerate it till use . If u dont like to eat raw banana stem , pressure cook it for one whistle and proceed.Make sure u use a tender , fresh stem.This dish will be helpful for people under diet as the fiber content of banana stem helps to reduce the weight.It is very filling too.Try this recipe and let me know how u liked it ..
