This is an interesting pakoda that combines the vibrant colour of spinach and the exciting crunch of onions with a dash of spice powders for flavour.

We have combined the right amounts of besan and rice flour to give the Palak Pakora an awesome crunch. A must-try recipe, the Palak Pakora will add more fun to a cup of hot Masala Chai during the monsoon and winter evenings.
