Vazhakoombu Thoran (banana Blossom Stir Fry)

I make it in the way my mother used to do . We had banana plants in our backyard in our native place and thus my mother used to cook it very often , and after moving to the city I buy this vegetable whenever I find it in the market.Banana blossom is rich in dietary fiber and vitamins.
