Spinach Pakodi / Palak Pakora ~ Spinach Fritters

Hi Friends,When the Climate is cold and the day is rainy means ,we may like to taste any hot hot snack item for the evening time.Ofcourse ,I too like to eat if the climate is cold.At India,my Mom used to prepare potato bajji,Chilli Bajji or any other pakodi/Pakora.Sometimes ,in India I used to purchase these Bajji's near the stalls and Carts.So friends yesterday ,in Torrance the day was full of cold breeze and raining.I was tempted to eat any hot snack item in the evening.I made my choice to do Spinack pakora.So friends ,if you are craving for the Pakora ,you can have Palak pakora and even by this way atleast we can consume the healthy palak and without comprising the taste ,Palak pakora are delicious too.Here goes my recipe.
