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)

Ingredients :

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 green chili (optional)
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)

1/4 cup distilled white vinegar 

2 mangoes cut into small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped 
1/4 cup golden raisins

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

Method :

Combine sugar and vinegar in a saucepan.
 Bring to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves.

Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, until  slightly thickened, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally during cooking.

Serve with Spinach Pakura.
