With the fluctuating climate in my part of the world we really cannot make out how our day is going to be. We anyway's carry umbrella's as we need it for both the extreme temperature. On the hot day's I generally make it in a big pot during the weekends so that we keep drinking without getting dehydrated. Vaazaithandu (Plantain stem) chopped roughly and blended with yogurt,lemon juice and salt gives this thirst quenching drink "Vaazaithandu Mor".
Plantain stem is one of the best vegetable for those with kidney stones. They are also used for UTI's. Most importantly they are one of the vegetable which is very high in fiber.
