I wanted to post banana stem mor kootu for long time. Whenever I buy banana stem, I rather make poriyal than this kootu. But love this mor kootu a lot because it tastes like aviyal a little bit 🙂 And the procedure is also somewhat similar with similar ingredients.

I am in Pune right now enjoying the break stay here and busy roaming around for shopping. Another two days here and then again back to busy marriage week at Chennai. Hoping to keep the blog alive with posts 🙂

How to remove fiber from banana stem?

I found this cool tip of removing the excess fiber in the cookbook I have, so tried it for the first time and surprised with the results. Its really cool and easy, so do try this way.

Use two clean and lengthy bamboo skewers, insert it into the chopped banana stem and run the toothpick in between your palm to and fro as we beat for making buttermilk from curd (using mathu).

This way the excess fiber part can be removed and discarded.
