Banana Flower / Vazhappoo Vada



Ingredients
Banana flower chopped finely - 1 1/2 cups
Chana dal 1 cup
Onion chopped 1
Green chillies 3 or 4
Ginger chopped 1 inch piece
Curry leaves few chopped
Coriander leaves few chopped
Asafoetida a pinch optional
Salt
Oil



How to prepare

Soak chana dal in water for one hour. Grind it-don't make a smooth paste. Mix with all the ingredients except oil. Make small, thin vadas. Deep fry in oil.(You can grind ginger and garlic to make a paste to add in this. But I haven't tried it yet.)
