Keerai Vadai: (spinach Vadai)
Keerai Vadai is one of the greates South Indian snacks recipe. This is made with spinach along with lentils. This tongue tickling crispy delicacy is my favorite and I learnt this recipe from my Mom, who is an excellent cook. By using, only urad and Bengal gram dal, we can get a soft Keerai Vadai. This pairs best with chutneys and tastes yummy and crispy…Try it and let me know how u liked it…:)
