Vazhaipoo chutney | Vazhaipoo thogayal | Banana flower chutney


    Vazhaipoo chutney | banana flower chutney is a very healthy side dish of South India which goes well with rice. We normally make stir fry with banana flower but a chuntey with this was new to me. I found this recipe in a magazine and tried out. It was the same as Coconut chutney(Thenga chammanthi) but with a unique taste.

    Banana flower is rich in iron and many nutrients. Here we are using the outer part of it which we need to boil it before making chutney. As we are grinind the banana flower, we will get all the goodness of it. My daugther loved it and now she is asking me to make it often. I have recently posted one video of 4 different varities of banana flower recipes on Youtube, there you can find this chutney recipe also.
