Ingredients to make Banana stem salad

  • Banana stem - 6 inches long
  • Green Chillies - 2
  • Lemon - 1
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Black gram ( split and without skin) ( Urad Dhuli) - 2 tsp
  • Oil - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - to taste

How to make Banana stem salad

  1. The banana stem has a couple of outer layers which have a honeycomb like structure when you look at the cut edges. Remove these till you reach the core which is solid and smooth.
  2. From one edge cut out thin circles. After cutting the first slice you'll see some fiber on the cut surface of the stem. Run your fingers on the cut surface and remove the fiber. Do this after every slice is cut.
  3. Finely dice the circles.
  4. Finely chop the green chillies and add it to the diced banana stem.
  5. In a small pan heat the oil and add mustard seeds.
  6. Once the mustard seeds have spluttered add the split black gram (urad dhuli) and let it turn golden brown.
  7. Add this to the salad along with salt and juice of one lemon.
  8. Mix well and serve immediately.
My Tip: You'll find banana stem in any vegetable shop in a South Indian or Bengali neighbourhood. The cut stem loses its water and freshness very fast so make it only when you're ready to serve.
