Spinach Onion Pakoras



Spinach Onion Pakoras

Onion Fitters or pakoda/pakori can be served as an appetizer or perfect snack with a hot cup of tea.  Hear I used a handful of baby spinach to make this crispy and spicy snack. Spinach adds color and more flavor to the pakodas.The flavor of onion pakodas are irresistible and this fitters and a family favorite.

Ingredients
Gram Flour/Beasan- 1 cup
Rice flour- 3 tbs
Baking soda- a pinch
Thinly sliced onions- 2 medium
Spinach chopped- 1 cup
Crushed ginger- 1 small peice
Garlic crushed- 3-4 pods
Green chilly- finely chopped- 1
Turmeric powder-1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Roasted whole coriander seeds- 1/2 tsp (optional)
( or you can used chopped coriander leaves)
Cashew nuts- a few
Asafotida/hing- a pinch
Oil for frying and salt to taste



 Wash and chop spinach and slice onions as thinly as possible.
Add crushed ginger and garlic to the onions and gently squeeze  the onion and add spinach.
In a bowl mix besan/gram flour, rice flour,baking soda, turmeric, coriander seeds, chilly powder, hing and salt. Add the chopped onion and spinach and cashew nuts
Sprinkle water little by little( Not more than 1/4 cup of water) and mix well till the gram flour starts sticking to the onion.
Heat oil in a pan and drop spoon full or just pinch a little and press with your fingers and drop into the oil. Fry till both sides are golden brown and crispy. ( do not make it too brown as it will continue to brown even after it is drained out of the oil). Drain into paper towels and serve warm with tea.
