Today, I decided to make one vegetarian dish with masala flavour. I made this tasty dish with natural and healthy Banana Stem which was there in my home. This is completely a tasty vegetarian dish. It can be made very easily with limited ingredients. This is little bit spicy dish and I made and shared many dishes with Banana Stem. Banana Stem contains Fibers so it is very good to use on daily basis. Fiber content vegetables are there but we can get Banana Stem very easily from home. It can store for long terms and it is also available in supermarkets also. I used natural and healthy Banana Stem here so this dish is completely healthy. To increase the taste of this dish I used Coconut Milk for cooking instead Water. Its masala contains the flavour and smell of Cinnamon Powder, Cardamom Powder and Fennel Seeds Powder. This masala stir fry is entirely different from others and it should not be overcooked and mashed. This recipe will be very useful to anyone who needs to learn cooking. It can serve when unexpected guests come home. So many are wasting this Banana Stem without knowing its health benefits. Don't waste Banana Stem now onward and make tasty dishes from this to get good health. I am really happy to share this tasty dish to all. Enjoy with this natural, tasty and healthy dish.
