Ingredients:Channa dhal (Bengal gram / kadalai paruppu) - 1 cup
Any chopped greens (Spinach) - 2 cups
salt - 1 tsp (to taste)
chilly powder - 1 tsp
garlic(chopped) - 2 tbsp
onion (chopped) - 1/2 cup
hing - pinch
cooking oil-250 ml. for frying
Preparation:Soak both the dhal for 1 hour in water.
Take out a handful of soaked dhal and keep aside.(This gives a crispy texture to the vadai.)
Grind dal to a coarse finish without water.
Add chopped spinach, salt, chilly powder, onion, hing,garlic, soaked dal and mix well.
Heat oil in a wok.
Take a small ball of the mixture (in the size of a lemon), slightly flatten in the palm of your hand then place in the hot oil . Fry 4 or 5 as per the wok size without crowding the oil. Reduce to medium heat. Deep fry on both sides to a golden brown color to mild red color. Take them out.
Keerai vadai is ready!
Serving suggestions:Serve as snack with tea or coffee.
Coconut chutney makes it more delicious.
Tips:This vada batter can be baked instead of frying to make a healthy vadai. If baking add few tsp of oil in batter to get the crispy baked vadai.
