It’s raining, and when it rains all we can think of is about a cup of tea and onion pakoras. It is a very easy to make snack and goes well as a side dish with meals.
When I get into the kitchen to cook, I have to think about my toddler who also wants to eat each and everything from the table spread. So I tend to be very cautious while adding chillies or anything spicy. But one thing I love doing is mixing some healthy green veggies, so that she can enjoy both tasty and healthy food.
So presenting my version of onion spinach pakora or paalak pakora which is very kid friendly.
You will need;
2 Onions thinly sliced
Handful or more of spinach leaves chopped
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1/2 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup gram flour (Besan)
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 green chilly chopped (optional)
Water for mixing dry ingredients
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying
1) Mix chopped spinach, chopped onion, gram flour, turmeric powder, cumin and coriander powder, coriander and mint leaves, salt in a bowl thoroughly. Add some water (approximately 1-2 tablespoons) but avoid adding excess water as the batter should be thick and sticky.
2. Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan. Make small fritters and drop them in hot oil and deep fry them until golden brown in medium flame.
So if you like this easy peesy recipe of mine, why wait for anything else. Go grab all the ingredients and just try this healthy version of pakoras. Do let me know in comments if your kids also enjoyed having it.
