Palak Pakora / Spinach Fritters

>> Monday, May 30, 2011

Ah!! should I say "I'm back from a long break.." Well I say this everytime I blog with a hope that it's true... As you guys know I'm doing my Masters and for past two months I was held up with projects, reports and exams.. I believe I'm going to blog regularly... Yippie!!
I'm having an ongoing event in my blog.. Lemme tell you, I've received lots n lots of delicious and healthy entries.. I thank everyone for this active participation.. Love u all..

So, here is my entry for this event.. Palak pakora, one of our favourite tea-time snacks!!!


Spinach (Palak), finely chopped - 2 cups
Onion, finely chopped - 1
Green Chillies, finely chopped - 2
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Gram flour (Besan) - 1/2 cup
Turmeric Pwd - 1 tsp
Red Chilli Pwd - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as per taste

For deep frying


Mix all the ingredients. If required add few tsps of water. Avoid adding excess water as the batter should be thick.

Heat oil in a deep pan. Take small amount of batter and drop them in oil in the form of small fritters.

Deep fry the pakoras until golden brown and crispy. Drain out excess oil and place them on a tissue paper.

Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney.


Sending this as an entry to  Veggie / Fruit A Month - Spinach event hosted by me and started by Priya.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to
.net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about
a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there
a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
