Servings: 18 Urundai
- 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.
