How to make Plantain stem parrupu kootu(South Indian delicacy)

  1. Cut plantain stem like round disc and remove the fiber by using the finger.
  2. One more picture is added for young cooks.
  3. Before cutting the disc take a vessel filled with water. Add Buttermilk and salt to it.
  4. Cut the disc into small pieces and add in the Buttermilk salt water. It helps the plantain stem to de oxidize and retain it's original colour.
