Vazhaipoo(Banana flower) Bonda

It is a popular south Indian snack and breakfast. These are so delicious and irrestible.The winter and crispy hot deep fried snacks sure have a beautiful relation that has only got better with time. A cold winter evening is best celebrated with a hot and crispy serving of onion pakodas, samosas, and aloo bondas. Vazhaipoo bonda is a nutritious  savoury which is  deep fried snack that is made with the urad dal or lentils.

We love it soaked in sambar in a deep bowl with the chutney which is so filling. The softness inside the bonda, the crunchiness from outside and the gorgeous golden color is something to be experienced each time with the yummy coconut chutney. The combo with sambar and coconut chutney is the superb combo by the South Indians.
