The Vazhaithandu Pachadi – Banana Stem Raita is a healthy recipe with the Banana Stem added raw to the yogurt and seasoned with mustard seeds. Banana Stem is known as Vazhaithandu in Tamil and is a super nutritious root to have. The Vazhaithandu is rich is fiber and nutrients and when combined with yogurt is great for stomach ailments.

I most often eat this as a yogurt salad for lunch. Since it is rich in fiber it keeps you filled and satisfied as well.

Serve the Vazhaithandu Pachadi along with Steamed Rice and Mixed Vegetable Sambar  and for a weekday meal.
