Hi Supermoms,

I am sure all of you are well aware of the numerous health benefits of eating banana flower. Today, I am going to share with you another tasty and healthy Banana Flower recipe. You can use the regular dosai batter to make this Vazhaipoo dosai. You can also make small Uthappams and add colourful vegetables to make it more attractive.  

This recipe is a simple and quick way of including Vazhaipoo in our diet. You can clean and chop the banana flower a day earlier if you want to make it for breakfast. You can refer to my Vazhaipoo Post to know everything about cleaning the Banana Flower .
