I absolutely LOVE tum! But I've never heard of a version using the stem base of the biu batu (stone banana) described here - interesting!


all i know was that the stem of banana trees can be cooked in curry, and rather delicious also.
taste like those tuber plants. but this TUM thingie is a bit different.

It's hard for me to describe to people how the entire banana tree is used in Asia for food and here you've got it all! THANKS!
