Pelehu and ko'ala should be interchangeable.......

I think the nuance is whether it's on the heat or under the heat?

"Pūlehu (on coals); lāwalu (in leaves); alehu, kōʻala, kunu, ʻōlani, pālaha, ʻōhinu, pākiʻi."

(although I just found in the next exercise that "I grill the sausage" was translated as "Kōʻala au i ka naʻaukake," so I guess it's not too rigorous!!)

My understanding is that pūlehu is for vegetables (taro, breadfruit) and kōʻala is for meats. See:
