  • How to Make Karee Vadai (Meat and Lentil Fritter):

    1. Soak the channa dal in water, for 2 hours.
    2. Finely chop the lamb pieces and marinate with turmeric, lemon juice, salt and 1/2 tsp of garam masala.
    3. Add oil in a pan, add the meat pieces and cook, until the meat is completed cooked.
    4. Now grind the channa dal, by adding very little water, into a thick coarse paste.
    5. Once the dal looks coarsely ground, add the meat and grind it again.
    6. Meat should also look like coarse pieces, in the dal.
    7. Now add the spices, salt, onion, chopped coriander leaves and ginger garlic paste. Mix it well.
    8. Heat oil in a pan to shallow fry.
    9. Once the oil is hot enough to fry, make patties out of the mixture and drop it in hot oil.
    10. Keep the flame in medium and cook it on both sides, until it looks golden brown in colour.
    11. Serve the hot vadai with green chutney.
