Vazhaipoo Vadai | Banana Flower Vada

Vazhaipoo Vadai
Vazhaipoo vadai is everyone's favorite at home. We once got a chance to taste this vada in a cafe in national highway. It was me who ordered this vada. My hubby was little hesitant to try since it is new to him. After tasting a little portion of it, everyone ordered for the second one. From then we head towards that particular cafe just to taste these delicious vazhaipoo vada. Have it with pottukadalai chutney for a great combination.
