  • Add the chopped spinach and remaining water. Mix well. The batter should not be runny.It should be thick like a cake batter. At this stage you can cover the batter and keep for 5-6 hours for fermentation and then make vadas. I kept it aside for 30 minutes.

  • Since I did not keep batter for fermentation, I added eno (fruit salt) before making vadas. Take half batter in a bowl and add 1/4 tsp of eno. Mix it lightly . The batter is ready to use. Once this batter is finished, make the other batter with by adding eno. The effect of eno if added to the entire batter would become less with time and then we end up getting dense vadas.
