I used preocessed bamboo shoot. The Bamboo shoot cannot be used immediately after it is cut. you should thinly cut it roundwise and soak it in water for a week . Change the water each day an squeeze the shoots and put it back.
Cut the bamboo shoots & choyte into bite size pieces and along with green chili slit boil it.
Once the water starts boiling add the salt and jaggery and cook it covered
Take the coconut and grind it into a fine paste by adding very lilttle water.
Once the bamboo shoot and choyte i scooked add the coconut paste along with the butter milk and bring it into a boil. Add the seasoning
Serve hot with steamed rice & pickle.
