Vazhai Thandu pachadi/salad

Recipe marathon2# 13th day

My amma’s grand ma use to prepare this salad & still continuing. In my in-laws house they call this vazhaithandu kosmalli & ¾ cooked splitted moong will be added into this salad.

Vazhai thandu called plantain stem in English. It is good in calcium & reduces body heat.This is raw preparation of vazhai thandu.


Ingredients

Vazhai thandu – small scale size

Lemon (medium) -1 no

Turmeric powder – 1 ½ tsp

Chilly – 1 no

Ginger (chopped) – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – 5 counts

Coriander leaves (chopped) – 1 tbs

Olive oil – 1 tsp

Mustard -1/2 tsp

Asafoedita – 2 pinch

Squeeze lemon in a bowl, add turmeric powder & salt to it. Then chop Vazhai thandu thinly & add it into lemon juice. Now add oil in a kadai, temper it by adding mustard, let it spluts. Add asfoedita, chopped g.chilly, ginger, curry leaves, coriander leaves. Then add this tempered mixture into the vazhai thandu mix.

Note: when vazhai thandu is cut thinly, the salad taste will be good. To avoid discolor of vazhaithandu, immediately add it into lemon juice after chopped.
