PreparationTime: 5 Minutes.

Total Time: 15Minutes.
Palak or Spinach : 1 cup cleaned, finely chopped and washed
Besan -1/2 cup
Ajwain- ¼ teaspoon
Salt- to taste
Refined oil- 1tablespoon
Oil extra- for frying
Garlic- 4-5 pods crushed
Green Chillies-2Nos. finely chopped
Rice flour-1tablespoon if unavailable substitute it with 1 teaspoon cornflour
Method :
Take chopped palak in a bowl, add crushed garlic, salt, ajwain, green chillies, rice
flour and besan in a bowl, mix all the ingredients properly, gradually start adding water to the mixture, as washed palak has a lot of moisture in it, the consistency of batter should be thick, mix continuously for one to 2 minutes as batter turns to fluffy and soft.
Heat oil in a kadhai or pan to smoking point, reduce the flame, take one tablespoon of oil from it
and add this oil to the batter, mix well.
With the help of spoon drop small sized pakoras in oil, fry them on medium heat from both sides till golden brown and crisp.
Remove them from pan and place them on tissue paper.
Serve hot with the sauce or chutney of your choice.
