The banana tree is a wonder plant that every part of the tree is used for cooking purposes. Have you ever tried cooking the banana flower or banana blossom? Purple in colour, heart-shaped, it is commonly seen in the Indian markets where it is considered a vegetable.
It is considered to be a good source of vitamins A and C. Also believed to be a good lactating agent and helps to relieve painful mentruation. It is also a very good source of fibre.
Here are pictures of a banana flower freshly cut. Leaks a lot of sap as its cut. Beware of staining.
Will share with you a traditional recipe with banana flower that I learnt from my mom, in the coming post.
