Vaalai poo (Banana flower)



There are many vegetables that are cooked with lots of care being taken, and many helping hands, this is one of that kind and called as banana flower.

This is a dish that can be prepared only for a small family and food relishing guests.

There is no difficulty in getting this in the village market,the flower is literrally peeled with every layer and the small flowers are selectively seperated of its bitter stamen and one tonguish petal,the rest go to make the dish its speciality.

The preferance for the cutlet sort of a dish is our vadai,but i prefer the boiled coconut grated dish which goes great with rice and chappatis.

(it is best to get the family involved in the cleaning process, it bonds and binds on its way to the table)
