Banana Stem Curry -- Simple Banana Stem Curry Recipe -- Arati Davva kura

Once a bunch of bananas are harvested, the tree/stem is cut away. Layers of hard outer stem are peeled away and only the tender inner stem is used. It is used as food and has lot of medicinal values in it. It is very fibrous, so the fiber thread has to be removed. The process of removing the fiber thread is given in my blog's Banana Stem in Curd post.
 In most of the Southern India it is eaten as vegetable with rice. It keeps the high blood pressure under control. It is very good for kidney stones and helps in detoxifying the body. We must include this in our regular diet. Those who are in weight-loss program, it is very beneficial. 
Coming to the recipe, it is very simple and easy to make. It can be consumed with rice.
