I love Ragi vadai. I have posted plain ragi vada before. When my mum does it disappears very fast. It is very addictive.. I always find it difficult to stop. I wanted to try spinach ragi vada for very long time. Otherday when I was talking to my mum she was mentioning that she had done keerai ragi vada and it came out very good. I have got the recipe from her.. It came out pretty well

Take a wet cloth. Take orange size ball and using your fingers make a round vada. Vada shouldn't be too thick. make a hole in the center as show in the pic.
Heat the oil in deep pan when oil is hot add this vada and let it cook turn to other side and cook again (Till "shhhh" sound subside and no bubble in the oil) now drain the excess oil and take out the vada. Place it on the kitchen tissue to drain extra oil if any
