Spinach Pakura with Mango Chutney
The Joy of Kosher site is filled with recipes that work. They are usually easy to make and so far, every one, I have made has proven to be delicious. Although the site is kosher, anyone can find recipes there.
Spinach Pakura (adapted from Joy of Kosher)
2 cups chopped fresh spinach
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup oil for frying
Mix all ingredients except for the oil in a bowl, add water just enough to moisten. The batter should turn sticky.
Heat oil over high heat in a large skillet. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil, flatten with fork. When browned, flip over and cook the other side until brown. Remove to a plate covered with paper towels.
Serve pakora with chutney of choice. I used a mango chutney and it was scrumptious with the patties.
To make the patties, I used my tablespoon cookie scoop.
Mango Chutney (adapted from Simply Recipes)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
Combine sugar and vinegar in a saucepan.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally during cooking.
