To begin making the Crispy Palak Pakora Recipe, first get all the ingredients ready.
In a large mixing bowl, add the gram flour, turmeric powder, salt, red chili powder. Stir to combine well. Add little water at a time to make a thick pakora batter.
Preheat oil in a kadai (wok) for deep frying. Once the oil has heated up sufficiently enough, dip each spinach leaf in batter to coat it evenly. Drop the leaf gently in the oil and fry it on a medium heat till the pakoras are crisp.
Once the Palak Pakoras are golden brown and crisp, remove them from the oil and drain on absorbent paper.
Proceed the same way with the remaining spinach leaves.
Note: If you don't have baby spinach, you can use regular spinach, chop it fine and mix it into the batter to make the pakoras.
