Palak Pakoda

Another recipe from my mom’s kitchen. Perfect snacks for rainy/ cold weather outside. I used a whole bunch of Palak which I brought for Palak-Dal. Also weather outside told me to use it for making Palak Pakodas 😛 This is a very easy and quick snacks which can be serve as a starter of as a tea time snacks.

In a rainy weather all you need is some pakodas and a hot cup of tea/ coffee. 😀

You can either deep fry these pakodas or cook in a flat pan with less oil. Either way tastes good. If you like to make a crispy deep fried pakoda then add small amount of rice flour.You can also pan fry the pakodas with very less oil.

Very less ingredients are required to make Palak Pakodas. You can also add finely chopped onions and other veggies if you like. Feel free to add veggies.
