Kadali Manja Raee ( Plantain Stem Curry )

Kadali Manja or banana stem happens to be one of those delicious vegetables that are extremely low in calories and also loaded with fibers. It is highly recommended to those suffering from kidney/gall bladder stones, diabetes, hyper acidity and constipation. For ladies, who are usually prone to infections of the urinary tract, banana stem juice is considered to be an excellent home remedy.

Kadali Manja also happens to feature regularly in most odia meals. In the earlier days, almost every household had a few banana plants growing in their garden. Once the plant bore fruit and the plantain bunch was plucked, the plant was cut down and the tender portion of the stem extracted for consumption. Since, it is only the inner core of the stem that happens to be fit for consumption, the protective outer layers (more like a sheath) need to be discarded.

It is a rather cumbersome process yet the ladies in those days put in that extra bit of effort to ensure good health for the family. Given today's busy lifestyle, I have adapted the original recipe to reduce the cooking time as one cannot take any shortcuts with the prepping process.

Read on for the recipe -

















Cooking Time Required: 15-20 mins ( Take it to be 45 mins including preparation )

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 inches long Banana Stem
  • 1 medium sized tomato
  • 2-3 nos green chillis 
  • 2 tsp thick mustard paste
  • 6-7 nos garlic flakes (crushed)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp mustard oil for cooking
  • 1 tbsp cut coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp mustard oil for garnishing


Preparation: This is the most time consuming process. Clean and cut the banana stem into thin circles.

After slicing off one circle, one can feel the fibres when it tries to separate it from the remaining stem. Move you fingers in a circular motion and remove as much of the fibres as you can.

Cut the circles into small pieces. Add salt and turmeric and keep aside for half an hour.

After half an hour, squeeze out all the water from the banana stem pieces using both hands.

Cut the tomato into big chunks while removing the seeds.

Cooking: Take all the ingredients (except coriander leaves) into a pressure cooker. Add 1/4 cup water and close the lid. Cook for 1-2 whistles on medium flame.

Remove and keep aside till the steam escapes. Open lid and add the chopped coriander and 1/2 tsp raw mustard oil.


















Note: Cook the banana stem immediately. If not then immerse in a bowl of warm water to which salt and turmeric has been added.

Wash the shrimps and drain away all the water.

Cooking: Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan. Add a pinch of turmeric . Follow with the
shrimps. Fry till crispy.

Taste the shrimps and add salt if required ( dried shrimps will be having some amount of salt ). Keep aside.

Heat 1 tsp of mustard oil in another pan ( or the same one if feeling lazy ). Add the
crushed garlic flakes and red chillis. Fry for 15-20 seconds. Add the spring onion greens with a pinch of salt. Stir fry till they are just wilted. Do not overdo as it needs to remain juicy.

Serve immediately so that the shrimps retain their crispiness. ( Gives an awesome
effect, the crunchy shrimps are offset by the juicy greens )

For the lemon pakhala: Cook rice till its softer than usual. Drain away all the water. Fill with fresh water and allow to stand for 4-5 hours. Add mint leaves, coriander leaves, lemon slices, slit green chillis, spring onions and salt.
