Vaazhapoo/Plantain Flower Poriyal

     I'll madly die for this poriyal. Yes, if it is hot from the flame. OMG ! i can't express my love towards it. All these "Hot from Flame" tasting was before marriage but now... Hope everyone knows that. :( Fine, this is the first time i prepared this poriyal after my marriage. Reason behind this late try was due to the cumbersome cleaning process. One day, when am returning back to home from office, i saw a very fresh Plantain flower, it tempted me much much to taste it right away so bought it blindly. Thank God, luckily, MIL - my savior was there at my home so asked here to clean it and chop it. Without any further delay, i prepared it. OMG ! what a heavenly taste it has !!! Everyone should try this for sure.. Here comes my moooooooosssssstttttttttt favyyyyyyyy poriyal.... :)


ALL YOU NEED:
Chopped Onion 2 Nos.
Toor Dhall 1/2 cup
Grated coconut 1/2 cup
Urad Dhall 2 spoons
Green chilly 3 Nos.
Curry Leaf 1 Twig
Mustard 1 spoon
Oil 2 spoons

To Pressure Cook
Cleaned Vaazhapoo 1 No
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Chilly Powder 4 Nos.
Salt To Taste

METHOD:

     Take a cooker, add all ingredients under "To Pressure Cook" and pressure it for 3 whistles. Leave it until it release the pressure. Keep a pan, heat 2 spoons of oil, add mustard, once it get splutters, add Urad dhall, once it turns golden brown, add chopped onion, silted green chilly, curry leaf and coriander leaf, saute it for a while. Mean time, do partial pressure cook of Toor dhall by adding a pinch of salt to it. Now its time to add cooked plantain flower, drain the excess water and add to the pan. Do a sauting. Drain the excess water in Too dhall and add it to the pan. Now add the grated coconut and adjust with salt. Saute it for 5 to 7 mins until coconut and toor dhall gets coated with the plantain flower. Put off the flame. Transfer it to serving bowl. Enjoy the heavenly taste. :)
