A delicious banana heart (flower) stir-fry which is usually served as side dish with rice. I found some refrigerated banana flowers in the Indian grocery store and dared to buy it once again eventhough last time it turned out to be slightly bitter. It tasted great this time! After removing the outer loose bracts (petals), the flower is finely chopped and washed in water with a pinch of turmeric and salt to avoid further browning. My mom usually add some oil to it and mix with hand to remove fibers (if any). To lightly fried onion, garlic and green chilli, the chopped flower and other spices are added and cooked. Then grated coconut is added and stir-fried for a few more minutes.
