VazhaiPoo Podimas

 Vazhaipoo podimas / Banana Blossom minced stir fry is the one i have waited long to try, as i guessed it is a great hit and liked by my better half alot.

Plaintain flower - 1 cup chopped.
Roasted bengal gram (Pottu kadalai) - 2 tbsp
Red chilly - 3
Fennel seeds- 1 tsp
curry leaves - few
Bengal gram - 2 tsp (soak it for 1/2 hr)
Coconut - 1/4 cup
Onion - 1
salt to taste and oil to temper.

I would like to start this recipe from separating the vazhaipoo...first we need to separate and wash vazhaipoo as per the below picture and need to soak it in butter milk to retain color.

Dry roast Red Chilly, roasted gram, saunf and grind it well.
Finally add the plaintain flower and run the mixy once, it should be coarse (else avoid mixy and u separately mince the flower and add it to this mixture).

In a hot pan pour 1 tbsp oil temper with curry leave, bengal gram, onion and add the mixture and saute well add salt to taste and cook till its done, once it is cooked well add the shredded coconut and switch off in 2  - 3 mints
Now the Vazhaipoo podimas is ready...

I am packing it to SIC–South Indian Cooking , happending @ Nivedhanam Event by Anu's healthy kitchen.
