Directions For Making Palak Pakora

  1. In a bowl, add all the ingredients one by one. Add salt to taste, add water & mix well to get a semi-thick batter. (Skip onion if you don’t prefer it)
  2. Ensure the batter is semi-thick, as the thin batter will make pakoras soak more oil. Keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan, add batter with the help of a spoon, and fry till golden brown on medium flame.
  4. Put fried pakoras on tissue paper to absorb excess oil. Serve crispy palak pakora hot with tomato sauce or green chutney.
  5. Palak pakoras can also be enjoyed with fresh, soft bread slices.
