To begin making the Banana Stem Thoran Recipe, prepare all the ingredients and keep them aside.
Add the banana stem into the pressure cooker, add 1/4 cup of water and salt and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
Release the pressure immediately, by placing the cooker under cold running water.
It is important to release the pressure immediately, so the banana stem does not become soggy.
