Keerai Pakoda/Green Fritters

                When my mom told about this pakoda's she read in a magazine i wanted to try but was very scared about deep frying as i've mentioned earlier,that i never go near hot oil.But still wanted to give a try.So finally gathered the confidence that nothing will happen to me while deep frying and tried it out.It came very well and was yummy too.So thought of sharing the recipe.

Ingredeints :

Keerai/Amaranth leaves 1 bunch
Onion 1/2 cup finely chopped
Corn flour 1 tbsp
Gram flour 1 cup heaped
Rice flour 1 tbsp
Fennel seeds/sombu 1 tsp
Garlic(optional)8 pods(finely chopped)
Red chillie powder 1 tsp
Green chillies 3 nos
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Salt Req
Cooking soda 2 pinch
Cilantro 2 tbsp chopped
Oil For deep frying

Method :

1.   Chop the leaves and onion finely and take in a wide vessel.

2.   Add all the other ingredients except oil to the leaves and onion.

3.    Mix all the ingredients together by sprinkling few drops of water if required(as onion and leaves tend to leave water) and prepare as a roti batter.

4.    In a heavy bottom kadai pour drop the batter little by little like pakoda's  and deep fry till golden brown.

5.    Now serve hot the pakoda's with tomato sauce.

Notes :

1.   Should be careful while sprinkling water as i've already mentioned that leaves and onion tend to leave water.

2.   We can use spinach leaves or sirukeerai also.I used sirukeerai.

3.   I didn't add garlic as i was not having in the pantry.

4.   Can even prepare as bonda's like dropping as big balls.

5.  While mixing like a batter,it should be tight than roti batter.
