Carrot Spinach Pakora


             This is simple n quick appetizer recipe..same like onion pakora ,i used more carrots n spinach n cabbage with less onion.Very yummy ,healthy n crispy snack for tea time munch.For me i tried frying in paniyaram pan with only 1-2 drops of oil...that also tasted so good n low calorie rt?? In paniyaram pan it takes more time to cook other than that nothing differs in taste..equally good.
Ingredients
  1. Carrot   3 large (shredded)
  2. Spinach   3/4 cup(finely chopped)
  3. Cabbage   1/4 cup (finely chopped)
  4. Onion  1 medium(thinly sliced or chopped)
  5. Cilantro   few finely chopped
  6. Ginger   2" large piece (finely chopped)
  7. Cashew nut    1 small handful (optional)
  8. Gram flour/Besan flour   1 cup
  9. Rice flour    1/2 cup
  10. Hing    1/2 tsp(powder)
  11. Ajwain seeds/omam    1/4 tsp
  12. Chilli powder   1 tsp or to taste
  13. Salt    to taste
  14. Oil  for deep frying
Method
  • Wash n shred carrots ,chop the spinach ,cabbage,onion ,green chilli n ginger and keep aside.
  • In a mixing bowl add the ingredients from "carrot to salt" and mix everything well.
  • If necessary just sprinkle very little water n mix this to a thick dough.
  • Heat oil in  wok for deep frying,when oil gets hot just prick small amount of dough say a 1tsp n drop carefully in to the hot oil n fry till turns crisp n cooked well.
  • Remove from the oil,drain it in paper towel n serve with a cup of  chai/coffee..
  • In case of frying in paniyaram pan, just drop very little amount of dough in each groove n cook in medium heat.
  • After 2 minutes turn other side n cook till crisp n cooked ...test by inserting tooth pick ...inserted toothpick should come out clean n dry.
