Resting time: N/A
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 4


  • Oil for deep frying
  • 2 tbsp hot oil
  • Water as required
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 cups chopped spinach leaves (packed)
  •  1-1/2 cups chickpea flour
  • 2-1/2 tbsp rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 2-3 finely chopped green chilies
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 10-12 mint leaves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves


  1. Mix all the above ingredients, incorporating salt to taste and 2 tablespoons of hot oil.
  2. Gradually add small amounts of water until the batter reaches a stiff consistency, just enough to coat the spinach leaves.
  3. Heat oil in a pan for deep-frying.
  4. Fry the pakoras until they turn a golden brown color.
  5. Avoid overcrowding the pan to ensure even frying.

To ensure your Spinach Pakoras turn out crispy, make sure the oil is hot enough before frying. You can test it by dropping a small amount of batter into the oil; if it sizzles and rises to the surface immediately, the oil is ready.
