Exactly this curry is similar to Fish curry, damn i love this spicy tangy curry, fills the tummy like any thing.. south indian delicacies had a twist with coconut, here this curry blend with coconut milk, so rich creamy curry.Banana flower is common before marriage, this is the one which i missed for a long, mom’s Vazaipoo kootu and Vazaipoo Thoran are the best, those are in the queue to post..Banana flower is meant to be a healthy vegetable.. banana tree is really a God’s Gift to this earth, all the parts are consumed to be a useful one, from fruit to stem.. Even the outer stem is used for so may things, nowadays banana stem plates and bowls are used instead of paper plate and paper cups, so here the flower curry is a delicious combo with hot Steamed Rice.
