This is a very simple everyday vegetable dish in Alor (Nusa Tenggara Timur), where of course you can pick your jantung pisang whenever you like in your back garden.

Jantung means ‘heart’, and the ‘heart’ of a banana is the long heavy spike of the withered flower, cut after the combs of young fruit have become firmly set. La war means ‘sliced thinly’.
