Palak Pakoras

Right from the day I set my eyes on these pakoras at Madhuri's blog, I have been wanting to try this.Whenever there is palak at home, either I did not feel like frying , or my daughter wanted something sweet that particular day or for some reason frying these golden beauties was getting postponed indefinetely. Today I decided that "Come what may...I shall fry these yummy pakoras" and I definitely do not repent.These pakoras came out so perfect , crunchy with a burst of flavours and textures as you eat into it. I wish i could parcel this to Baroda and Bhubaneshwar (niece and nephew)
