Valapoo Vadai

Banana Flower-1
Roasted channa dal-half cup
Red chillies-4-5
Sombu/Jeera-1 tsp
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Coconut ,grated-2-3 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves,chopped-handful
Oil to deep fry

1.Remove flower stem's ribs and chop them
2.Add the stems to water(u can add buttermilk to retain the color)
3.Squeeze and add it to blender with roasted channa dal,sombu,red chillies,coriander,
turmeric powder and salt
4.Grind to fine paste ,as u can make vadai.If it is watery ,add roasted channa dal powder
5.Add Coriander leaves to the paste and make small fine vadais
6.Deep fry them in med flame

Some may cook the stems and then grind it..U can also try that way..Sometimes,banana flower stems  bitters,u can keep the paste in fridge for over night and make them vadai...
