Crispy Palak Pakora – Ganeshgrains

Crispy Palak Pakora


  • 25 Spinach Leaves (Palak)
  • 150 grams Ganesh Gram flour (Ganesh Besan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Carom seeds (Ajwain)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Turmeric powder (Haldi)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Chaat Masala Powder, for sprinkling
  • Cooking oil, for deep frying


  • To begin making the Crispy Palak Pakora Recipe, first get all the ingredients ready.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the gram flour, turmeric powder, salt, red chili powder. Stir to combine well. Add a little water at a time to make a thick pakora batter.
  • Preheat oil in a kadhai (wok) for deep frying. Once the oil has heated up sufficiently enough,
  • Dip each spinach leaf in the batter to coat it evenly. Drop the leaf gently in the oil and fry it on a medium heat till the pakoras are crisp.
  • Once the Palak Pakoras are golden brown and crisp, remove them from the oil and drain on absorbent paper.
  • Proceed the same way with the remaining spinach leaves.
  • Sprinkle chat masala on Palak Pakoras and serve them hot with Date Tamarind Chutney, Green Chutney or even plain old Ketchup
  • Note: If you don’t have baby spinach, you can use regular spinach, chop it finely and mix it into the batter to make the pakoras.
