Banana stem is a super food which I am bringing back to blog in the form of stir fry(Remember banana stem raita?). Banana stem stir fry is too good friends, you must try this. Fiber loaded banana stem in any form is always always a healthy option and in take of such an awesomeness works wonders on our body in terms of detoxification. So there is so much good going on here..
When you buy a banana stem from super market, don’t think all layers of it are edible. This fiber-y veggie needs some prior work like removing the skin off from the stem till you obtain a hard core portion which cannot be peeled further. It is this part of the stem which is good to eat and consume. When you chop this edible part, you get to notice lots and lots of strings of fiber clinging around which needs to be removed then and there. You carry on removing fibers and chopping it in to fine cubes simultaneously and it’s a unique precooking experience!! 😕
When you have those cubes of banana stem in hand, then cooking stir fry is a breeze. Like season, cook, grind some spices and mix. that’s it. I used red chilly and little mustard seeds with coconut as a masala mix which you can alter and try various other combinations. Like swapping red chilly by green ones or using cumin instead of mustard, stuff like that. All these combinations work really well to make wonderfully delicious banana stem stir fry which you love for it’s detoxification.
