Keerai Vadai [With Ulundhu]/Spinach Vadai with Urad Dal

Keerai vadai is a very common snack in Southern India. This vadai can be made with different combination of dals, but here I was used urad dal. It is a perfect evening snack with hot piping tea or coffee. I have used spinach you can use any other greens that is available. This is totally irresistible keerai vadai and you can never stop eating them. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here.

Here’s how to make Keerai Vadai with step by step photos…



Ingredients

Urad dhal/Ulundhu
1 cup
Rice Flour
1 – 2 tsp
Spinach
One bunch
Big onion
1 finely chopped
Green chillies
2 or 3 finely chopped
Ginger
½ inch piece finely chopped
Curry leaves
6
Cilantro
3 tbsp finely chopped
Salt
As needed
Oil
For frying vadai

Method

Wash and soak the urad dhal for at least 4 to 5 hours. Now grind it in the grinder or mixer to a very fine paste. Don’t add water when grinding the dal, just sprinkle little water when needed. When grinding the dhal add the required salt, so that it will loosen up the dhal.


Clean the spinach, wash it really good and chop them finely.

Transfer the ground dhal to the bowl. Add rest of the ingredients except the oil and mix it really good.


Heat oil in a kadai, when it is ready make vadai as shown in the photo and fry them to golden brown evenly on both sides.


Note:
The urad dhal after grinding should never be watery.

If, by mistake the urad dhal has gone watery add some more rice flour and urad dhal flour to fix the mixture.
