Vazhaipoo Vadai Recipe / Banana Flower Vadai Recipe


Vazhaipoo is such a healthy veg for us..Really healthy but taste so yummy. We can make thoran, poriyal with it. But the tasty dish is making vadas from it. Masala vada / Paruppu vada is delicious, but this one taste so much good than masala vada. 


This vada is so crispy on the exterior and so moist and fluffy in the middle. I loved it so much, that i made it two days in a row. This one i made it the second day, so the banana flower turned little black but nothing horrible..


I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
