notes:

  • increase the amount of chilli powder to make it more spicy.
  • frying on medium flame makes your palak pakoda crispy and tasty.
  • wash the palak leaves and cut off the steam. wipe with cloth and allow to dry before you use to prepare pakodas. else the water content present in palak makes oil to splutter.
  • adding rice flour makes pakodas crispy.
  • you can chop palak and mix with batter. then deep fry like onion pakodas making round balls.
