VAZHAIPOO VADAI [BANANA FLOWER VADAI]

Vazhaipooo vadai is a delicious snacks for evening Tea. This is made out of banana flower, which isone of the authetic Tamilnadu dishes. Lets have a look into vazhaipoo vada preparation.....
Ingredients:
Vazhaipoo - 1/2 of a big poo
Channa dhal - 1/2 cup (Soak for 2 - 3 hours)
Hing - a pinch
Jeera - 1/2 spoon
Onion - 2
Green Chillies - 1
Curry Leaves - 1 stalk (chopped)
Coriander Leaves - few (chopped)
Salt - To taste
Oil - for deep fry

Method:
  • Peel the outerskin from the banana flower and remove the stamen and chop it into small pieces and put them in a bowl of buttermilk (this will maintain the colour of the flower without blackening)
  • Grind the soaked channa dhal and red chillies to a coarse texture.
  • To this grinded dhal add chopped onion, green chilles, curry leaves, coriander leaves, jeera, hing and salt and mix them nice.
  • Now drain the water from vazhaipoo and mix it with the channa dhall mixture.
  • Make tiny balls of the mixture and flatten them like vadas with hand.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium flame and deep fry these vadas to golden brown.
  • Drain it in the kitchen towel and serve hot with ketchep up.
