Vazhaipoo Kola Urundai

Banana bloosom is called as Vazhaipoo in tamil which is good source of fiber and has lot of health benefits.Since vazhaipoo is available easily in my home town,it is one of the frequently used vegeatable in my parents place.My mom makes the Kola Urundai  as an evening snack or a side dish for rice varieties.Whenever I buy vazhaipoo I make poriyal with half of it and the remaining half will be used for kola urundai or vadai.


Vazhaipoo(cleaned,cut and chopped) 2cups
Roasted bengal gram dhal(Pottukadalai)1/2cup
Ginger1 inch piece
Curry leaves2 sprigs
Coriander leaves(chopped finely)1tsp
Red chilly5-6
Fennel seeds(sombhu)1tsp
Oilfor frying
Salt to taste


                   Take out the petals, clean,chop and put them in the buttermilk to avoid blackening.Steam cook the chopped vazhaipoo and squeeze out the excess water.Put coconut,half of the pottukadalai, onions,red chillies,ginger,garlic,fennel,curry leaves,vazhipoo and salt in mixie jar and powder it without adding water.

Once the mixture becomes coarse, sprinkle some water and grind it to a smooth paste.If the mixture is not grinding to a paste add little more water and grind it.Transfer it to a plate now, powder the remaining half of the pottukadalai to  the batter.Add the chopped coriander leaves and mix it well.

Now make small balls out of the batter and keep it ready.Fry the balls in the oil in a medium flame.

Take out from the oil and drain it in a paper towel.

Enjoy it hot with a cup of tea.

  •  If the batter becomes watery add little more pottukadalai powder or besan.
  • Green chillies or red chilly powder can be used.
  • Oil should be in a medium flame.
