Remove the hard stamen from the banana blossoms by chopping off the tops. If this is your first time cooking, Please use the plastic gloves to prevent the sap from sticking on to your hands or grease your hand with oil.

About Me

Hi, I'm Anuradha. As a mother, I always wanted to provide healthy food to my family. Though many sources are available for good food, only very few satisfy our palate. That may be because of the way we were brought up or the way we like. I'm trying to document the recipes which we (family) really liked. This could be helpful not only for me but also for others as a quick reference. If we are very good at the traditional recipes (basic), we can create different food as per our taste. So, I'm getting started with the traditional recipes. Hopefully, I could soon able to create different types of food on my own. Your comments & feedbacks are much appreciated.
