Keerai Vadai

For the day 2 of BM#17, I made some very delicious Vadai with greens. This is a recipe from my mother .

Black gram dhal     1/2 cup
Mulai keerai/Any greens    1 bunch
Salt                      to taste
Oil                       for deep frying
Soak the black gram dhal in water or 1-2 hours
Pick the leaves of the greens, clean well , wash them and cut very finely.
Drain the dhal completely, and grind it into a very smooth paste with very minmum water.
Add the cut greens to it.
Add salt and mix well
Heat a kadai with oil, and when sufficiently hot, take a little dough, try to make it into a ball shape with a hole at the center and slide it down the hot oil.Be careful not to splatter the hot oil and hurt yourself.
When it starts to brown, flip it over and let it cook on the other side too.
Deep fry the vadai in batches and transfer them to an absorbent paper.
Serve hot with a chutney of your choice
