Baale Dindu(Banana Stem) Tambli

Ingredients:
1 cup chopped Banana Stem / Baale Dindu
1 - 2 Green Chillies
Small piece of Ginger
3/4 cup grated Coconut
1 - 1.5 cups fresh Buttermilk
Salt to taste
8 - 10 Fenugreek seeds
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1 - 2 broken Red Chillies
4 - 5 Curry leaves
1 tsp Ghee

Recipe:


Make thin round pieces of banana stem by removing its fibre content and chop them into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below.

Grind grated coconut, green chillies into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water.(If it is frozen coconut, use hot water while grinding.) Add chopped banana stem, ginger and grind them together for about 2-3 mins. Add this ground coconut to a vessel. Add buttermilk, salt, water(if required) to the same vessel and mix. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to Tambli.)

Put mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, broken red chillies, ghee in a pan and heat. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to Tambli. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice.
