Grind the roasted gram dal/pottukadalai to fine powder in mixer and keep it aside.

Clean the vazhai poo, chop and put them in the butter milk to avoid blackening. Add vazhai poo, turmeric powder, salt to the pressure cook and cook for one or two whistles.

Ingredients needed for Grinding

Add onions, ginger, garlic, dry red chillies, coconut, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida  and grind it really well and transfer it to a bowl.

Then drain the water from the vazhai poo and add it to the mixer and grind it to smooth paste. Transfer the ground vazhai poo also to the bowl.

Now add the ground pottukadalai/roasted gram dal [5-6 tbsp] , rice flour ,salt and mix everything really well.

Now you can either small balls or small vadai’s.

Heat oil in kadai for frying the kola urundai. Put a small pinch of kola urundai batter into the oil if it raises immediately then the oil is ready for frying. Slowly drop the vazhai poo urundai/vadai to the oil. Cook on all sides evenly or until its browned and is crisp. Fry the kola urundai/vadai on medium flame. 

Remove from oil and transfer it to a plate. Repeat the same for all the remaining kola urundais/vadai.

Yes, crispy and super tempting Vazhaipoo Kola Urundai is ready to be enjoyed.


If you fell the kola urundai batter is a little watery, then you can add little more pottukadalai powder and mix thoroughly.

I have used dry red chillies, you can very well replace it with green chillies.
Cook the kola urundai on medium flame only.

Adjust the spice and salt level according to your family needs.
