PLANTAIN STEM STIR FRY

Loads of work. Started the process of shifting to Chennai. So, friends, I will not be able to comment on your posts for sometime. Please bear with me. Also there will not be frequent posts in my blog till I settle down.

INGREDIENTS:

Plantain stem chopped - 2 cups
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp.
Urad dhal – 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Dry red chillies – 2
Grated coconut – ½ a cup
Curry leaves - few
Oil
Salt

METHOD:

Chop the plantain stem finely. Boil it in water, alongwith required amount of salt and allow it to cook.

In a kadai, heat oil, add mustard seeds. After they splutter, add urad dal, turmeric powder, curry leaves & dry red chillies.

When urad dal turns golden brown, add the cooked plantain stem & grated coconut. Saute for a while and serve hot.
