Vazhaipoo Killu Pakoda/Banana Blossom Pinched Fritters

Sunday went really fast, i have picked a banana blossom from Indian grocery yesterday, eventhough i was planning to prepare some gravies with that fresh banana blossom, my mind went for making out some pakodas with those fresh banana blossom with soaked channadal instead of making pakodas with rice flour and besan flour, this crispy pakodas tastes truly delicious,prefect evening snacks with a cup of tea, its quite a best and better way to feed whoever never like this healthy banana blossom, everyone enjoyed munching this crispy pakodas for evening snacks..Even this pakodas suits prefectly for travelling to munch them..


2cups Channadal (soaked for 2hrs)
1cup Banana Blossom (chopped finely)
1no Onion(big&chopped)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Fennel seeds
1tsp Ginger(grated)
Curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Grind the channadal with fennel seeds as bit coarse paste,grind the chopped banana blossom as fine paste and take together the grounded channadal and banana blossom in a large bowl, add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, grated ginger, salt, curry leaves to the grounded paste, mix everything well...meanwhile heat the oil, take a golf balled size batter and pinch gently a small quantity of this dough  to the hot oil,continue the process until the batter get finished..fry until they turns golden brown..

Enjoy this crispy pakoda with a cup of tea...

Dear Priya,

Thank you for the wishes. I hope my wound will heal quickly.

I love pakodas. Never had one that has bananas. My amma prepares pakodas with groundnuts and I love them with coffee in winter season.

Missing amma :)

May god bless you.

Regards,
Abhi
