Cut the ends of the vazhaikkai, cut into half and add it to pressure cooker. Add 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles and switch off the stove.

Wait for the steam to release, open the pressure cooker lid and remove the cooked raw bananas. 

Let it cool, then peel the skin, it will come out easily.

Now using a grater, grate the vazhaikkai and keep it aside.

Meanwhile, heat ½ tsp of oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cinnamon stick, gasagasa and fry for few seconds until nice aroma arises.

Now add dry red chillies and fry for 20-30 seconds.

Then add slit green chillies and fry until the color changes a little.

Now add the grated coconut or chopped coconut and fry for another 30-40 seconds.

Add fried gram/pottukadalai and stir really well.

Now add turmeric powder, finely chopped coriander leaves and fry until the moisture in coriander leaves is completely absorbed.

Now switch off the stove and let the mixture cool completely. Add everything to the mixer and grind it to coarse powder along with salt.

Now add the ground powder to the grated vazhakkai and mix everything really well with hand.

Make small balls with your hand and keep it aside. If needed you can rub little oil in your palms to make the kola urundai.

Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying the kola urundais.

When the oil is hot add 4-5  vazhaikkai balls at a time and deep fry till golden brown color.

Yes, delicious and super tasty Vazhaikkai Kola Urundai is ready to be enjoyed. You can serve this hot either as a side dish for lunch or as kofta in gravies or as evening snacks along with tomato ketchup.

Deep fry raw banana balls gently over medium flame only.
When making the dough, never add water because the plantain/vazhaikkai will have enough moisture. If you add water then the balls will start drinking oil.
