2-palak-pakora-recipe
      Palak pakora or palak pakoda is an easy evening snack, perfect for tea time. I think there is another version of palak pakora of mixing the spinach leaves with the batter, but I have had this way in a restaurant once and even my MIL makes this when she makes south Indian version with vegetables.(bajji). If you have ready made bajji mix, then this can be made more easily in a jiffy Happy. Hang on with this simple snack as of now, I promise to bring you intersting recipe coming up next Batting Eyelashes.

Palak Pakora/ Pakoda recipe

Indian Starters
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients

Palak/ Indian spinach 10 leaves
Bean/ chick pea flour
/Kadala maavu
1/2 cup
Rice flour 1/4 cup
Ajwain/ omam or jeera 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder 3/4  tsp
Cooking soda/ Sodium bi carb 2 – 3 pinches
Asafoetida 2 pinches
Ghee 1 tsp
Oil as need for deep frying

 


Method

  1.   Separate the leaves from the stalk leaving little bit as shown in the picture. Wash and set aside. Place all the ingredients other than oil & palak , in a mixing bowl.1palak
  2. Add water little by little and mix to a thick batter. It should be thick but loose enough to coat the leaves. 2palak
  3. Heat kadai/frying pan with enough oil. When its hot enough (if you drop a drop of batter in oil, it should rise immediately). Dip the leaves one by one and carefully drop in oil. You can fry 2-3 at a time depending on how much oil you use for the frying. Fry both sides until it puffs up and turns crisp and golden.3palak
Notes
    • You can replace black pepper powder with red chilli powder too. But I love the flavour it lends to the pakoras.
    • You can use any spinach that are big enough for this pakoras.
    • Too much water or too much cooking soda will make the pakoras oily.
   
          Drain over paper towels to remove excess oil  and serve hot with green chutney as side along with hot tea! Consume hot.

  18. I find the dish amazing, I’ll definitely try it. Pakoda has alwaya been my favorite, thanks for the gr8 recipe and tips.
    I was bored with eating ordinary food, I think you all must have (been in/are in) the same phase, so this is definitely for you an exotic Indian recipe with gr8 sections filled with delicious recipes.
