Stuffed Spinach Fritters (stuffed Palak Bajjis)
This is a lovely snack for tea time.
10-15 big size palak leaves(spinach)
oil for deep frying
2 Boiled and mashed potatoes
2 finely chopped green chillies
1 onion finely chopped
salt to taste
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 cup Gram flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chilli powder
water to mix batter
Wash the spinach leaves gently so that they do not tear. Wipe with dry cloth so that there is no water on the leaves.
Prepare stuffing by mixing potatoes, onions, salt, garam masala and geen chillies.
Gently spoon the stuffing on the spinach leaves and fold them carefully as shown in the picture.
The leaf will stick together because of the potato filling.
Prepare bajji(pakoda) batter by mixing all the batter ingredients. Dip the palak fillings in the batter and deep fry in oil till brown and crisp. serve hot with chutney and chai:)
