  • Grinder
  • bowl
  • pan
  • spatula


  • 2 Vaazhakkai / Raw banana
  • ½ cup Pottukadalai / fried gram
  • 1 tsp Poppy seeds
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 4 tbsp Coconut Grated
  • 4 Red chilies
  • 1 tbsp Fennel
  • to taste Salt
  • to deep fry Oil


  • Slice the vaazhakkai into 2 inch pieces and then cook them until it soft and mushy. Once it cools down a bit, peel the skin and mash the bananas. It was hard for me to mash it into a smooth texture so I ground it in the mixer later with the spices.
  • Grind the pottukadalai into powder and keep it aside.
  • Also grind the poppy seeds, garlic, coconut, red chilies and fennel into a powder. Once you grind the spices, add the cooked banana to the mixer and give it a quick grind to make it smooth.
  • Remove the mixture to a bowl and then add the pottukadalai powder and salt to it. Using your hand, mix them well to form dough.
  • Pinch out small pieces and roll into a smooth ball and keep it in a plate.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying. Slowly add 3 or 4 balls to the hot oil and fry until it is golden brown on all the sides.
  • Remove the Vaazhakkai Kola Urundai and place it on a paper towel lined dish
  • Serve when warm.
