Wash and soak the channa dal/kadalai paruppu for 2-3 hours. Drain the water completely and keep it aside.

Clean & wash the Arai Keerai and Siru Keerai thoroughly. I have used these two keerai varieties; you can choose regular spinach or any other keerai varieties available in your place.

Chop the Arai Keerai & Siru Keerai finely.

Now grind channa dal/kadalai paruppu, fennel seeds, red chillies to a coarse mixture, in a mixer/blender make sure you don’t make it into a paste. Now transfer the ground dal to a bowl.

Add the finely chopped onions, garlic, ginger, green chilies, curry leaves, salt to the ground dhal and mix really well.

Then add the finely chopped keerai to the dhal mixture.

Mix thoroughly with hand. [Check the amount of spice and salt level at this stage]. Make lemon sized ball out of this dhal mixture, pat them on your palm to form circle to medium thickness.

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them until golden brown on medium flame. Make sure it is crispy and golden brown color on both sides.

Remove from oil and drain it on a paper towel. Repeat the same for all the remaining vadai mixture.

Yes, crispy and delicious Keerai Masala Vadai is ready to be enjoyed. Serve it with hot cup of tea or coffee.
