Banana Leaves as Plates


In most of southern India banana leaves are available abundantly. They are used as plates for traditional South Indian Food. It is believed that when hot food is placed on these banana leaves the heat generates beneficial aroma to rise from the natural plates.

People prefer these to china because they doubt the cleanliness of western style plates.

It does take time in learning to eat with the fingers and direct from the banana leaf.
