'Thor' in the bengali lingo or 'banana stem' is a wonderful veggie which has a lot of essential nutrients, health benefits and is good for weight loss and in lowering high blood pressure. It is also popular in the southern regions. This stem can be turned into various delicious recipes. So here comes 'thor muri ghonto', which means banana stem cooked with rice. This muri ghonto recipe is usually prepared with fish head and some rice. But i thought why not apply the same rule in making with banana stem. I should say it turned out simply yummy. I gave a tempering of bay leaf, cumin seeds and whole garam masalas and cooked with cashew paste, milk and other spices for a creamy texture. The medium of cooking was of course mustard oil and i finished it off with some garam masala and ghee to enhance the flavour. It is best relished as a side dish with either plain rice, chapattis or parathas.
