1. Grind the roasted gram (pottukadalai) into fine power (without water ) using the dry mixie jar. Keep it aside.
2. Grind the banana flower, cumin seeds, red chilli, pepper corns and garlic pods into coarse paste without water.
3. Add onion, coconut and salt with the above mixture.
4. Again grind them into fine paste without water.
5. Transfer this ground mixture into a wide bowl. This is little bit watery and sticky. Hence add powdered dal (from 1) little by little and knead it into a soft and non sticky dough.
7. Make small gooseberry size balls from the dough and keep it aside.
8. Heat the oil a pan, add a pinch from the dough. When a small pinch comes up immediately, then this the right temperature to fry the balls.
9. Fry the balls in a medium flame till the sizzling sounds stops completely.
10. Take them out from the oil and keep it on the tissue to absorb the excess oil.
   Yummy and delicious vaazhai poo kola urundai is ready to serve. Serve them with tomato ketchup.

1. If flower is very big, use ½ of the flower only.
2. If you use big onion, add ½ of the chopped big onion.
3. Don’t overload the oil with balls.
