Palak pakoda is one such dish.Spinach leaves dipped in a thin gram flour batter and deep-fried to a crisp finish is an ideal monsoon snack and starter.

1/2 Cup Bason
1 tea spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/4 tea spoon Turmeric Powder
1/4 tea spoon jeera powder
1/2 tea spoon Corriander Powder
1 tea spoon ajwain(carom seeds)
Salt to taste


Wash Palak leaves and keep aside to dry a bit.

Mix bason, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, jeera powder, corriander powder,carom seeds and salt to taste with water to form a paste with water.

Heat oil in a kadai.When its slightly warm, add a spoon of oil into the bason paste.Because of this the pakodas absorb less oil.

When oil is hot, dip one palak leaf at a time in the bason paste and add it into the pan and fry the pakoda on the golden colour. Fold the leaf a bit and dip, for the pakodas to get a shape.

Repeat the same for the other leaves.

Serve hot pakodas with sauce or chutney.

NOTE: Use fresh palak leaves so that pakodas become crispy as they are fresh and tender.

Preparation Time:15 mins
