Vaazhapoo vadai

Vaazhapoo vadai is traditional tiffin which my mom used to make every week without fail. Because vaazhapoo (banana blossom) is very good to strengthen the utreus. Here is the recipe I followed to make this vadai.

  1. Channa dhall - 1/2 cup
  2. Urad dhall - little less than 1/4 cup
  3. Rice - 1 tsp
  4. Red chillies -3 to 4 (acc to taste)
  5. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  6. Vaazhapoo (banana blossom) - 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  7. Curry leaves - few
  8. Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
  9. Salt to taste.
  10. Oil - to deep fry
Soak channa dhall, urad dhall, rice and red chillies for 2 hours. Drain it after two hours and grind it coarsely adding red chillies, and salt, without adding water. Now add vaazhapoo, coriander leaves, curry leaves and asafoetida powder and mix it well. If necessary sprinkle little bit water. Make small patties out of the batter and deep fry it. Serve it hot with tomato sauce.
