palak ke pakore is an ideal monsoon snack recipe with spinach leaves dipped in gram flour batter and deep fried.

Palak ke Pakore

'palak' is the hindi word for spinach and 'pakore' means fritters, so palak ke pakore is basically spinach fritters. 

palak ke pakore is a crisp and yummy tea time snack recipe with very basic ingredients retaining the taste and aroma of spinach.

palak ke pakode is prepared in two ways. the first method is to deep fry the whole spinach leaves dipped in batter. the second method is to chop the spinach leaves and mix along with the batter and deep fry small round pakoras. today, I'm sharing the first method of making palak ke pakore.
