Palak Pakoda Chaat is a nice simple Indian chaat recipe made with deep fried spinach pakodas topped with curd, chutney and some chaat masala and Indian spices. The Palak Pakoda Chaat is made from spinach pakodas which use spinach leaves that are dipped in a batter of besan and then deep fried.

To the Palak Pakoda we put some meetha chutney and drizzle some whisked fresh curds over. Then sprinkle some teekha chutney, onions, chaat masala and red chilli powder to complete the Palak Pakoda Chaat.

For making the Palak Pakora Chaat, dry the palak patte with a clean kitchen towel. If there is any water content left, the batter won’t coat well and the hot oil might splutter while frying. I love to have this Palak Chaat as an evening tea snack.

HI.. can I deep fry palak leaves & then make chaat after 2- 3 hours?. Will fried palak leaves get soft if kept for long time after deep fried?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Hi, it will get soft and soggy, as palak will start releasing water.
