MulluMurungai Keerai Vadai / Bhangarapan Bhairi

MulluMurungai Keerai is a medicinal keerai and its juice is used to cure cold and cough. I don't know the right English term of this keerai and if anybody come to know about it, you please inform me. Its a healthy and nutritious dish. Children who do not like to have keerai also will love this vadai.

Ingredients:

MulluMurungai Keerai – 15 Leaves
Raw Rice (Pulunga Arisi) / Idli Rice – 1 cup
Pepper Powder – 2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Cooking Oil

Cooking Instructions:




Wash and clean the rice and soak it in water for ½ an hour. Grind it by adding enough water until it is smooth. The batter should be very thick in consistency like the chapatti dough. If the dough becomes little watery add a little rice flour to it and mix well.

Separate the leaves of mullumurungai keerai from its stem. Now wash the leaves and grind it smoothly by adding a cup of water. Drain the water in a bowl and mix this water in the already prepared batter. Add enough salt and pepper powder in the batter and mix it well. Wrap this batter in a neat towel so that the water in the batter will be completely absorbed by the towel or a cloth. Keep this batter aside for half an hour.

Heat oil in a deep pan for deep frying the vadas. Take a plastic sheet and apply a tbsp of oil on that sheet. Take a small ball of flour and place it on the sheet and flatten it with your hands. Now remove it from the cover and drop it in the oil carefully. Wait until the one side of vada cooks well and now turn it to the other side, and and wait until the other side is cooked well. do not wait until the vada turns to golden color. when it attains a good green color, u turn over it to the other side and let it to cook. Remove it from the oil and drain the excess oil with a paper towel.
