The thokku is made by sautéing the chopped banana flower with a combination of aromatic spices and herbs. The tempering of mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, and curry leaves adds a distinctive flavor to the dish. Finely chopped onions and green chilies are added for additional taste and a bit of heat.
A blend of spices, including turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, and optionally sambar powder, elevates the flavors of the thokku and adds depth to the dish. The spices are mixed well with the banana flower, and the dish is allowed to cook on medium-low heat until the florets become tender and absorb the spices.
The final result is a delightful and flavorful thokku that showcases the unique taste of banana flower and the aromatic blend of spices. The dish strikes a balance between mild bitterness from the banana flower and the warm flavors of the spices, making it a popular side dish to be enjoyed with steamed rice or Indian breads like roti or dosa.
