“Mom, You Know I Hate Bananas. Please No!”

Last Updated on

Some children are fussy eaters. They don’t want to eat anything healthy. So sometimes we need to trick them into eating something healthy or to bring some twist in a recipe or try something new.

The recipe which I am sharing is not unique, not very popular, and not many know about it. To be frank, the above-mentioned title was my dialogue during school days, and my mom got an out-of-the-box idea to give me all the nutrients of banana through its flower. Sounds different, doesn’t it?

Here is the yummy recipe. I know you too must be facing the same problem with your kids, so please do try it and if you like it, do share your experience. So, let’s start with our recipe.


  • Banana flower (kelful)
  • Oil
  • Mustard seeds
  • Curry leaves
  • Turmeric
  • Chilli powder
  • Salt
  • Peanut powder

  1. Take a pan and add oil. Once it’s hot, add mustard seeds for tadka. Wait till the popping sound stops, then add curry leaves (you may chop it and add).
  2. Add one teaspoon turmeric, chilli powder as per your taste. My mom adds half a teaspoon.
  3. Now add finely chopped and washed banana flowers. Close the pan with a lid, and let it cook for ten minutes.
