Banana flower stir fry
Being from Mangalore, banana/plantain forms a significant part of our cuisine. While raw banana, banana plant stem, banana flower, and even ripe plantain are used in everyday cooking, banana leaf is used as a plate for serving the meal. This is a simple, yet tasty stir fry (palya) recipe that I am very fond of. This dish is best served with hot rice and rasam or tambuli.

Banana flower
Banana flower has maroonish-brown layered peel. Keep removing the peel until you reach the heart that is partially white. This is the edible part that is used in this recipe.
