  • In a kadai,heat oil and temper mustard,urad dal and curry leaves. After the dal turns golden brown, add the vazhaipoo mixture and mix well.Keep the flame low and cover cook for sometime.You don’t need to add water because the water in banana flower itself is sufficient.Keep the flame low and cook it with a lid for 10-15 minutes.Toss it once or twice in the middle.
  • After the banana flower is completely cooked,add the grated coconut,mix well for a minute.Remove and serve.You can add few drops of lemon juice if u want tanginess.We don’t do it usually.
