Vazhakai Bonda - Raw banana Bonda

Well this is called....last minute thinking.....I made this dish specially for the WYF snacks event by SnackORama (http://snackorama.blogspot.com/2007/08/sunday-meal-5-whats-your-favorite-event.html) and the JFI: Banana...by ahaar (http://ahaar.blogspot.com/2007/09/jfibanana.html) I have submitted one recipe each for the 2 events but wasnt satisfied with just one... Banana is such a versatile ingredient and there are so many things one can make with it......but no time...
This recipe is my contribution to both these events....do check out the round up. For the details on the event cleck on the links given above.

Anyways here is my recipe...the tasty and tempting evening snack.... Vazhakai bonda..... In tamil raw banana is called vazhakai... hence the name.:)
You will need :
Raw banana (Vazhakai) - 2 small, peeled and sliced
Ural dhal - 1 cup
Pepper - 2 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 3
Salt to taste
Oil to fry
Method :
Soak the urad dhal in luke warm water for around 3 hrs. Slice the bananas in thin slices and keep aside. Now in blender...put the soaked urad dhal...(drain the water completely). Add the sliced bananas, green chillies, salt, jeera,pepper and grind into a coarse paste.
Heat some oil in a skillet. Drop small balls of the batter into the hot oil. fry till golden brown in colour. Your Vazhakai bonda is ready to be served.

Serve hot with Tomato ketchup or mint Chutney... This is an amazing evening snack...Enjoy!!

I made ripe banana bhajjis for the event ....got to try out this one..Regarding your query...you can find Ching's green chilli sauce and soy sauce at indian grocery stores here. Most of the places i have been to carry the sauces. However if you cant find it- heres the way to make the green chili sauce- (i have used this before and the taste turns out the same) just use regualr indian green chilies (in greater proportion- approx. 15-20 but watch out for your spice level), lots of ginger (approx. 2-3 inches) and garlic (1-2 cloves), 1 tsp vinegar.
