Baledindu pachadi / Vazhaithandu Pachadi / Banana Stem Raita is a healthy recipe with the Banana Stem added raw to the plant yoghurt and seasoned with mustard seeds (optional). Banana Stem is super nutritious to have. It’s rich in fibre and packed with nutrients and when combined with yoghurt is great as a chunky soup.

I most often eat this as a yoghurt salad for lunch. Since it is rich in fibre it keeps you filled and satisfied as well.

  • Raw banana pith - 2 inches height
  • Soaked cashew - 10 whole cashew
  • Lime juice
  • Rock salt
  • Chopped coriander
  • Dill / mint leaves ( optional)
  • Grind soaked cashew, lime juice, salt into a raita.
  • You can optionally add few dill or mint leaves while grinding just for mild flavour.
  • Chop banana stem pith finely after removing the extra fibre and add to the raitha. This has to be the last step in the process as the chopped piece change color if kept aside for a long time.

This can be relished as a raw dish as-is.
