Vazhaipoo Kola Urundai | Veg Kola Urundai | Banana Flower Balls

Did you ever taste Vazhaipoo Kola Urundai? If not, surely give a try to this, you will be amazed by the taste and texture of this dish.It can be served as a accompaniment for any rice dish or as starters or as snack for evening tea. I like to have them as snack for my evening tea.
For mutton kola urundai, you have to grind the mutton flesh, somewhat i feel uncomfortable for grinding the mutton in mixie jar and use the same jar for other purpose. So i keep on postponing, dont know when will i make? But to satisfy my craving of kola urundai, i make this vazhaipoo kola urundai often.It taste equally good.
Cleaning the vazhaipoo is a bit time consuming process and also you need lot of patience.To clean 1/2 cup of Vazhaipoo, it takes minimum 20 mins and it's enough for only 10 small kola urundai. So if you're making in large quantity, definitely it will be good if you're having an extra hand to clean.Let see the procedure now.

  • Squeeze the vazhaipoo well and then add for grinding.
  • Depends on the moisture content, you many need more or less roasted dal powder,so always it's better to keep some extra.
  • If you prefer, you can add ginger also.
  • If you dont like fennel smell, add 1/2 tsp of cumin seed instead of fennel seed.
