People all over the world eat banana as part of their fruit product.but have you ever wonder that banana stem can also be eaten as curry for our dinner or i am going to share you how people eat banana stem as a curry.there are lots of benefit we could get from banana. Above all it is rich in vitamin c and is also a source of fiber.

According to my study banana stem curry is eaten mostly in northeastern india and southern part of  india as part of their daily essential food i am going to demostrate how banana stem  is cooked as curry mainly in northeast state of india called Manipur.where they call banana as LAFU

Different place have different way of cooking . So in northeast india banana stem is cook mainly as paste or chutney where they call it LAFU EROMBA at their local language.

Ingredients required:

  • 2-3 banana stem
  • 2 cup of soaked pea
  • 3-4 piece of dry fermented fish where they called it ngari
  • 3-4 potato
  • 4-5 chilli
  • Salt
  • Coriander 
  • Chopped onion

Steps of cooking:

  • First cut the banana stem into round pieces. About 1 cm thick each. Thicker the cut stems longer time it takes to cook
  • Put the cut stems, soaked peas,baby potatoes, chilli, dry fish all together inside a pressure cooker But you have to put dry fish at a seperate cup or vessel so that it will not get dissolve with the water.
  • Put some water inside the pressure cooker according to requirement.close the lid of the pressure cooker.
  • Boiled it for about 5-8 minutes.
  • Then take out the boiled ingredients  in a  container and cool it down.
  • Seperate the chilli and dry fish and make a paste by adding some salt on it.
  • Then mashed the boiled banana stem, potato and peas either with hand or utensil. And also add the paste of cilli and dry fish
  • Put some water to make the brot of the curry.
  • Garnished the mashed curry with chopped onion and corainder leaves or other aromatic garnishing leaves in order get the lovely aroma of banana curry.
  • The leaves used for garnishing at the picture is called tuningkhok (tu-ning-khok) at local language. this leave is the most matching garnishing ingredient for banana stem curry. Which give a different unique smell and flavour to the curry.
  • Finally the banana stem curry or lafu eromba is ready to served with rice.
