Plaintain flower curry

Take the outer cover of the plaintain flower and remove a bunch of florets at a time. Hold them in hand and brush on top of the bunch. This will make the stamens visible. Remove the stamens only and cut the bunch into small pieces. Soak them in water mixed with curd & turmeric (otherwise it becomes black very soon). steam it in a pan using water. When half-cooked you may add salt. Once cooked, drain the excess water and set aside. Take 2 tablepoons of oil in a pan, add mustard. once it splatters, add urad dal and 1 red chilli and asafoetida. add the drained plaintain flower and fry for about 7-8 minutes. add grated coconut and fry for a minute.
