Ingredients to make Vaazaithandu Rasam | Banana Stem Rasam

  • Plantain Stem - 250 grams
  • Water – 400ml
  • Tomato -1
  • Chili – 1
  • Ginger – 1 tblsp finely chopped
  • Rasam powder – 1 tblsp
  • Lemon – ½
  • Toor Dhal – 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric – 1/3 tsp
  • Hing cake – small piece
  • Coriander –few
  • Salt – to taste
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Mustard – 1/3 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
  • Ghee – 1 tsp

How to make Vaazaithandu Rasam | Banana Stem Rasam

  1. Soak Toor dhal for 10 minutes and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  2. Once cooked, take out the dhal, mash it and keep it.
  3. Start to prepare for the rasam by peeling the other skin of plantain stem. This one comes off very easily. For this rasam you no need to remove the thread like fibers. This is because we are going to grind the stem.
  4. Grind it in a mixie with 200ml water.
  5. Filter the juice with a thin cotton/muslin cloth. Filtering with the regular metal strainers might not work out. Once filtered, dilute and make it to 400 ml.
  6. Grind the chili, ginger and tomato separately to a pulp. Add little water only if grinding is difficult.
  7. Take a container add the tomato-ginger-chili pulp, plantain stem juice, hing, turmeric, salt and curry leaves.
  8. Bring it to boil by keeping in low flame.
  9. Once boiled add the dhal & rasam powder and cook until frothy. (The daal should kept ready by this time.)
  10. Temper with ghee, mustard & cumin seeds
  11. Squeeze the lemon juice at the end.
  12. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  13. Serve hot
My Tip: Time of 25 minutes for cooking is given as we can cook dhal and prepare the rasam in parallel. You may wish to cook them first and then start the rasam. Timings vary accordingly.
