Crispy Palak Pakora

I had a lot of spinach/palak and made this snack using it. Pakoras are usually served at tea time with ketchup/green chutney. The directions to make them are as follows.

Serves 2-3 people
Cooking Time 20 mins

Ingredients for preparation :

Finely chopped fresh Spinach - 3/4 cup
Besan -1 cup
Ajwain/ oma/ vamu seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Red chilli powder- 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tbsp
garam masala (optional) - 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
1 tsp hot oil
Pinch of baking soda
Oil for frying
    1. Take a bowl and mix together chopped spinach, besan, ajwain seeds,red chilli powder, turmeric powder,salt,garam masala and a tbsp hot oil together. Add water and make batter without forming any lumps.
    2. Heat oil in a pan on medium level. Drop spoonfuls of batter in the oil and fry till crispy and golden brown.
    3. Remove from oil and place the pakoras on tissue/paper napkins to avoid excess oil.
    4. Serve hot with tea or with ketchup or a chutney of your choice.
