Palak Pakoras: The Snack That's Good For You!

Of course, they’re great when made from scratch, but what if you don’t have the time but are still craving some super-crispy Palak Pakoras?  Well, then what you’d want to do, is what I do:  pull out my a bag of the frozen stuff, lay them out onto a baking sheet, and pop them into the oven for 15 minutes.  Then, you turn off the oven from the bake-mode to the broil-mode so that the heat is only from the top in order to crisp them even more.  Watch them for about four minutes, then pull out and serve with chutneys and ketchup.  They’ll be as good as if you bought them at that dhaba down the road. 

Palak Pakoras, for the uninitiated, are deep-fried fritters made with spinach and gramflour. Spinach-anything is good for you, you know that!  The frozen kind are already fried, which is why baking/broiling works just fine.

Here’s what mine looked like yesterday!  Oh, and the perfect beverage for the perfect snack?  Why, chai, of course!
