Vazhapoo (Banana Flower) Thuvaiyal

Ingredients (Translation)

1 small banana flower
2 tbsp blackgram dal
1/2 tbsp bengalgram dal
3 Red chillies (add more if required)
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
Salt to taste

Dry roast the dals and red chillies.

Remove the thread inside each banana flower petal and cook with little water for about 10 minutes. Allow it to cool.
Grind it along with asafoetida and salt to get a coarse paste. Add water if required.

This goes well with rice and can also be a good substitute for the normal chutneys for dosas and idlis.
Although it would be slightly bitter in taste, it is very good for health.
