Palak Pakoda/Palakura Pakodi

Palak or Spinach pakodi is one of my favourite evening snack item. For that matter any snack item in deep oil fry is my most favourite food item.  But I cook them very rarely because of fear of excess oil frying and fear of adding more calories. Though I am not calorie conscious but still... :) :) :). So I cook them very rarely. 

Ingredients:

Besan - 1 and 1/2 cups
Palak or Spinach - 2 bunches or 2 cups
Onion - 2 Large
Green Chillies - 2 
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder  - 1 tsp
Oil - for deep frying

Procedure:

Chop palak and wash thoroughly. Chop onions and green chillies also. 
Mix all the dry items salt, red chilli powder and garam masala with besan. Mix well.
Now add chopped palak, onions, green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Mix them well. 
Add water if necessary only. As the batter is in thick form. It takes 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water only. 
Heat oil in a deep and thick bottomed pan.
Slowly drop little portions of pakodi batter into the hot oil. Fry them till they turn into brown or golden brown color. 
Serve palak pakoda with tomato sauce or have them as it is. I prefer to have them without any side dishes.
