Okay, I can hear that ‘what the heck…’ on seeing the name J. People say that many a time boredom is in the way things are presented rather than the things itself. So here is my attempt to make a not so interesting banana-stem juice more alluring. Try it and I bet you won’t regret it. And a well known piece of info is 'It is said to be very good for people with kidney stones'.
Preparation Time: NA
1. Banana stem – 4 “ long
2. Coriander – few sprigs
3. Curry leaves – 1 sprig
4. Green chili – 1 small
5. Lemon – 1
6. Salt to taste
Step 1: Wash and chop the banana stem into 1” size cubes; place it in a mixer jar.
Step 2: Wash and add green chili, coriander leaves, curry leaves, lemon juice and salt to the mixer jar.
Step 3: Grind them with some fresh water. Filter using a mesh and grind the pulp again with some more water to extract the juice completely; filter and discard the mush.
Step 4: Now taste and adjust salt, water and lemon juice in it.
Step 5: Serve and relish the refreshing mock tail immediately.
