How to make Vazhaithandu Thayir Pachadi | Banana Stem Raita

  1. To begin making the ‘Banana Stem Raita’, combine 1 cup of water with yogurt and dilute it like a butter milk.This mix is required for color retention of the banana stem as it would turn into black color after cutting.
  2. Take the required amount of banana stem and discard the outer porous layer and retain the hard inner layer. Slice both the edges of the banana stem and discard it.
  3. Start cutting the banana stem into circles, pull and remove the fibrous thread (using hand) which comes out while slicing. Once all of them are cut into slices, chop them into small bite sized cubes.
  4. Transfer these banana stem cubes into the butter milk mix and immerse for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, strain the banana stem from the butter milk mix. Discard the butter milk mix and retain the banana stem for raita preparation.
  6. Take a serving bowl and add the chopped banana stem cubes. Start boiling ½ cup of water or the amount needed to immerse the banana stem cubes.
  7. Once the water is boiled, pour it on top of the banana stem and close it with a lid for 15 minutes or room temperature whichever is later.
  8. In 15 minutes, the banana stem cubes would have been cooked in the hot water covered.
  9. Begin tempering by heating oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds and as they splutter, add urad dhal, cumin seeds, mor molagai (curd chili), curry leaves and fry them well. Transfer this mix into the banana stem cubes.
  10. Take 3 tblsp of yogurt and mix well with banana stem cubes.
  11. Serve chill or at room temperature.

My Tip:

Tip: If you have excess banana stem, preserve them by wrapping in a cling wrap.
