Banana stem is the stem which is the inner most layer of the plantain so when you use this make sure to remove the outer layers . Where as the best part is this mor or buttermilk can be made using the outer layer which is chopped i the knife and then should be blended because there is more fiber in this and it can damage your mixer grinder’s life so keep that in your mind.
