Palak Pakoda

(Spinach Fritters)

Foggy mornings!! It has been so cold this season, temperatures are going low every where. Getting out of the bed is so difficult! All I want to do is have garam garam chai with some spicy pakodas, cuddle in a warm blanket and watch some feel good movie!! Pakodas are great company for this weather. If you are bored with regular onion pakodas, make these healthy palak pakodas. Kids who are usually not found of palak will also love these pakodas surely!!

Palak leaves- 1 cup
Onion- 1 cup
Coriander leaves- 2 tsp
Besan- 1 cup
Rice flour- 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste -1 tsp
Chilli powder- 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil for deep frying


Wash spinach leaves, drain the water and chop them finely.

In a bowl, mix together chopped onions, chopped palak leaves, coriander leaves, gg paste besan, red chilli powder, salt, rice flour and some oil and mix with your hands.


The onions will ooze out some water so use few drops of water only to mix everything. Heat oil in a kadai. Reduce the heat to medium and drop roughly shaped balls directly into the oil.

Remember to fry them on medium flame only, this helps the palak to cook well. Fry until golden brown. Remove pakodas from the oil and drain them on a paper towel and enjoy this awesome weather with hot and crispy palak pakodas!!
