Vazhaithandu Mor | Banana Stem Buttermilk | Gluten Free Recipe

Vazhaithandu Mor

Hi Supermoms,

Vazhaithandu/ Banana Stem is rich in fibre and is also helpful in weight management especially reducing belly fat, promotes healthy kidney functioning and also prevents acidity. I have earlier shared the Vazhaithandu Mor Kootu recipe, Vazhaithandu Sambar recipe and Vazhaithandu pachadi recipe. 

Today, I am sharing another healthy and easy way to include banana stem in our diet. Cleaning and chopping the banana stem takes longer time than cooking them . In this recipe, as you are grinding and filtering the fibre, you can chop them roughly along with the fibre. Buttermilk helps in digestion. In ayurveda, it is considered as an elixir to good health. Adding the juice of banana stem increases the nutritional value and health benefits of drinking this buttermilk.
