                         Curd             -- as per ur need
                         Mustard seeds -- 1/2 tsp

                         Asofoetida        -- a pinch
                         Green chilly  -- 1
                         Corriander leaves -- to garnish
                         Salt                      -- as per ur need
                         Oil                      -- to temper

                Cut the banana stem into  long thin slices and put into the water.
                     Like this.....                                  
                Put in the water immediately otherwise it turns black.
