  3. Next mix it with ginger, green chili paste, turmeric, cumin, coriander powder and little salt and keep separate.
  4. Heat oil in a wok and temper with white cumin powder, bay leaves and cinnamon.
  5. Fry the potatoes with little turmeric powder and salt in it, till it's light golden.
  6. Add the coconut and gram seeds and cook till it is all golden brown.
  7. Next add the banana flower mixture and cook till all the water released by it dries out.
  8. When done, add little water, salt and sugar as per taste and cook with a covered lid for few minutes and then without the lid.
  9. When all water is dried out and the dish becomes oily, turn off gas and add garam masala and ghee on top.
  10. Mix well after 2 minutes and serve hot with rice.

My Tip:

Adjust the flame accordingly. First cook the banana flower on medium flame and when the water dries down, cook on a mild flame and then on a slightly high flame.
