Description: It is very hard to cut and clean Vazhaipoo/ Banana Flower /Banana Blossoms. It’s a difficult and time consuming process but it ultimately pays off. It usually takes about 45 mins to an hour to clean one whole Banana Blossom. Asian grocery stores carry fresh ones once in a while and I make it point to get one inspite…
Banana Blossoms / Banana flower is not that common here in USA except for some coastal and tropical regions. To my surprise found one fresh in my local market this week. Atlast!
Simple home-style stir fry. Very healthy dish.

Authentic Tamilnadu delicacy. Banana flowers combined with Bengal gram and deep fried to make this mouth watering starter.
