Vazhaipoo Vadai Recipe/ South Indian Snack Recipe

How To Make Vazhaipoo Vadai (Banana Flower Vadai):

  • Clean and finely chop the vazhaipoo. Pressure cook chopped vazhaipoo with very little water (just sprinkle water) for just 1 whistle. Allow it to cool and remove the lid. If there is any excess water gently squzeeze and keep aside.
  • Soak chana dal for 2-4 hours. Wash and drain the water.
  • Grind coarsely red chilies, coriander seeds, ginger and fennel seeds in a blender/ mixie.
  • Add washed and drained chana dal to the same blender/ mixie and make into a coarse paste without adding any water.
  • Don’t make it into a fine paste. You should have whole dal here and there.Take it in a wide bowl.
  • Add cooked vazhaipoo, chopped onions, finely chopped curry leaves, finely chopped coriander leaves and required quantity of salt.
  • Mix well and check the salt.
  • Heat a deep pan with oil. When the oil is hot, take a lemon size ball and flatten it with your palms of medium thickness.
  • Drop the flattened balls into the oil and fry until they turn  into golden brown on both sides.
  • Drain the excess oil. Serve hot with Tamarind rice, Lemon rice or you can have it as a snack.
