1 small Banana Flower / Poombe / Kundige / Bale Hu
1 Green Chilly
1/2 cup of grated Coconut
2-3 cups of Buttermilk
Salt to taste
1-2 florets of Garlic
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
3-4 Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil
Take inner part of banana flower as shown in the picture below. Put it in a microwave for about 3-4 mins. Remove outermost cover. (You can also use wood charcoal to cook entire banana flower and then remove all outer burnt part or you can chop this banana flower into small pieces and cook it in a pressure cooker.)
Make them into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below.
Grind this cooked banana flower, grated coconut, green chilly into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut, use hot water while grinding.) Add this ground coconut to a vessel. Add butter milk, salt and mix well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to tambli.)
Remove outer cover of garlic and mash it. Put mashed garlic, 2 tsp oil in a pan. Once it turns golden in color, add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to tambli. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice.
