Cherupayar Koombu Thoran (Lentil with banana flower)

Cherupayar Koombu Thoran


Green moong dal - 100 gms
Banana Flower - 150 - 200 gms
Shallots - 7 nos
Green chilli - 2
Coconut grated - 1/2 cup
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 1 spring
Coconut Oil - 2 tbsp

Remove out few leaves of the flower from the outer part. Then chop the rest of the flower finely( I used a chopper). Rub 1 tbsp coconut oil into the chopped flower and keep aside for atleast 20 mins.

Soak moong dal overnight and wash and boil the dal till done.

Grind roughly shallots, coconut, green chilli and turmeric powder.

Now in a pan, add rest of the coconut oil and once hot add in the mustard seeds. Once seeds splutter, add in the curry leaves. Then add in the chopped banana flower and saute till its done. Then add in the boiled moong dal and cocnut mixture with salt and mix nicely. Cover and cook over low flame for about 10 mins. Check for salt, if needed add more.

Easy and fast isnt it :) ? Very high in protein and goes excellent with rice.
