Spinach Pakoda or Palak Pakora with Step by step pictures.
This delicious pakoda is not only easy to make but taste so yummy. It needs just few ingredients to make. The addition of spinach in this make this deep fried snack a tad healthier. But still it is a occasional snack. You can try baking it in a air fryer too.
Pakoda is hubby’s favourite one. He loves any crunchy pakoda with his cup of tea. Specially this one is delicious and fluffy. This can be served with any chutney of choice.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
