Spinach Onion Pakoras/Palak kanda bhajji

Spinach is very rich in iron, so I try to cook it at least once a week with different style. Sometimes I make Palak sabzi with moog dal or Palak paneer. Today again it was spinach turn and this time I wanted to eat something which is more tasty and spicy, so I thought of making Spinach Onion pakoras which I made and ate with dal and rice.

Ingredients:

1 bunch spinach (medium sized) 
1 finely sliced onion (medium sized)
1 green chilly chopped (optional)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp roasted coriander seeds
1 tsp red chilly powder
1 tsp grated/shredded ginger
1/2 gram flour/besan 
Salt
Oil to fry



Method:

Clean, wash and chop spinach. Take a large mixing bowl and add spinach, sliced onion, green chilly, salt, coriander seeds, chilly powder, turmeric powder, grated ginger and mix well before you add besan to it. Now add besan and mix everything together, add little water if required. Heat sufficient oil in kadai or non stick pan. Make a flat shape bhajji/pakora and drop it slowly into the hot oil and fry until cooked or crispy.



Serve hot with green chutney/hot sauce or ketchup!!
