  1. Clean vazhaipoo and pressure cook for 1 whistle with a cup of water and turmeric powder.
  2. Allow it to cool down then grind it to a semi coarse paste in batches, transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Soak channa dal for 30 mins then grind it with ginger, garlic and fennel seeds to a smooth paste.
  4. Sprinkle just a few drops of water if needed.
  5. Now in a bowl add chopped onions, coriander leaves, roasted gram dal powder, rice flour and both the ground pastes - ground vazhaipoo and channa dal paste.
  6. Do not add water. Mix well and make small patties / vadai shapes and keep aside.
  7. You can also refrigerate the patties for 10 mins to avoid the vadais drinking much oil.
  8. Then heat oil in a kadai and deep fry them to golden brown.
  9. Drain it in a tissue paper and then serve.
  10. Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.
