How to make Banana Blossom Curry

  1. First clean the banana blossom.

  4. Now chop the florets finely and soak them in plain water.
  5. Add turmeric and salt to the water and allow it to soak overnight (refrigerated) or at least for 30 minutes.
  6. To cook the banana blossom/plantain flower, drain the water from the florets.
  7. Pressure cook them in a cooker with 1/2 cup water upto 2 whistles. Once cool, gently mash using the back of a ladle.
  8. Heat a heavy bottomed pan with mustard oil over low flame.
  9. When the oil starts to smoke, add bay leaves and cumin seeds.
  10. Now add the grated ginger and saute for 30 seconds.
  11. Stir in the cubed potatoes, chilli powder, salt and 1/4 cup water let the potatoes cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
  12. Once the potatoes are cooked and dry add the cooked banana blossom, sugar and mix well. Cook covered for 2 minutes.
  13. Adjust salt and add the ground coconut and chillies.
  14. Immediately add the garam masala powder, stir well over medium flame and switch off.
  15. Garnish with a teaspoon of ghee and roasted peanuts.
  16. It is a dry curry recipe and is often served along with steaming hot rice and ghee.
