I prepare a scrambled egg (podimass / podimas) with banana blossom and wanted to share it with you all !
Banana flower - 1 small
egg - 2
onion - 1
green chilly - 4
shredded coconut - 2 tbsp
salt - to taste
coconut oil - 1 tbsp
curry leaf - 1 sprig
mustard seed - 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
cumin - 1 tsp
Clean the banana flower (see: How to clean the banana flower?).
Take out the edible portions as suggested. Place them all in water with few tbsp of buttermilk to prevent oxidation (color change) till we are about to cook it.
Squeeze the chopped banana blossoms to remove the liquid and chop them finely.
Chop the onion, chilly, curry leaves finely.
Heat oil in a wok. Let the mustard splutter. Then add chopped onion, chilly, curry leaves and saute till onion gets soft. Add chopped banana flower to wok and saute for a minute. Cook covered in low heat for 3 minutes.
Remove lid and check if it is cooked. Add required salt, turmeric, pepper. Stir in low heat to get a dry stir fry.
Break 2 eggs and add to the stir fry.
Fry till eggs get cooked, then add shredded coconut, cumin and switch off.
Banana blossom scrambled egg is ready !
Serve as side dish with rasam rice or sambar rice.
