Palak Pakoda (Spinach Fritters)
2 cups palak (spinach) leaves,
1 cup besan or gram flour (or as per requirement),
2 green chillies, finely chopped,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp red chilli powder,
1/2 tsp ajwain (carom seeds),
Salt to taste,
Oil for frying.
Wash and coarsely chop the spinach leaves and mix all the other ingredients (except oil) to form a thick batter. Heat oil in a kadhai (wok) on a medium-high flame. Take out a spoonful of hot oil and mix with the batter. Now reduce the flame to low-medium and drop small balls into the oil. Fry at lower flame till they turn golden evenly. Serve with any chutney of your choice.
