Arati puvvu vada/Banana Blossom Vada just looks like dal vada but tastes totally different.....compared to dal vada they are crispy and healthy........it exactly tastes like keema vada. I'm very delighted to share the recipe of my grand mom..........
- 1 small Arati puvva/Banana Blossom, (clean and cut them into small pieces), 1/2 cup channa dal, (soak for 2 hrs and grind into course paste), 3/4 onion (finely chopped), 3 green chillies, 1spring curry leaves, salt to taste, handful-coriander leaves, oil to deep fry.
- Boil 2 cups of water in a bowl, allow to boil, then add 1/8 turmeric powder , flower and cook for 4 min., then strain the water and set cooked flower aside. Now mix onion, chillies, salt, cooked flower , curry leaves, coriander leaves, grounded channa dal paste to it and mix well. Take a small portion and roll into small balls, make it flat in between the palms and deep fry them in oil. Repeat the same for the rest of the mix. serve hot with Tea.
