Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized - Plantain flower/vazhaipoo
  • 4 tbsp - roasted gram dal, powdered
  • 1 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • 1 big sized - onion, finely chopped
  • Chopped coriander leaves, a handful
  • 1 tbsp - Rice flour (optional)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil - 3 tbsp
  • For grinding:
  • 2 to 3 tbsp - Channa dal
  • 4 pearls - Garlic
  • Ginger, a small piece
  • 2 tsp - Fennel seeds
  • How to Make Vazhaipoo Vadai:

    1. Clean vazhaipoo and pressure cook for 1 whistle with a cup of water and turmeric powder.
    2. Allow it to cool and then grind it to a semi coarse paste.
    3. Soak channa dal for 30 mins and then grind it with ginger, garlic and fennel seeds to a smooth paste.
    4. Sprinkle just a few drops of water if needed.
    5. Now in a bowl add chopped onions, coriander leaves, roasted gram dal powder, turmeric, rice flour and both the ground pastes - ground vazhaipoo and channa dal paste.
    6. Do not add water.
    7. Mix well and make small patties / vadai shapes and keep aside.
    8. You can also refrigerate the patties for 10 mins to avoid the vadais soaking up much oil.
    9. Then heat oil in a kadai and deep fry them to golden brown.
    10. Drain and serve hot with chutney or ketchup.
