Vazhaikkai Kola Urundai - Blogging Marathon

Kola Urundai is a deep fried snack, generally made with Kheema; and enjoyed by all. The addition of spices - Chettinad style, makes it unique. The vegetarian version here uses Vazhakkai / Raw Banana. These make great starters. Serve on toothpicks with Tomato Ketchup or spicy Geen Chutney.
Optional Vegetables - Beetroot / Raw Jackfruit

Blogging Marathon - for the next 7 days is on from today. We are 27 in all. It feels great to be a part of the charged up group. Enjoy the Chettinad Feast.
