Palak aloo Bhajias are some of the most delicious fritters from India. Indian fritters are made with chickpea flour which , to me , has a warm nutty flavor. You can find this flour in Indian markets or a store like Whole Foods. Either way they are too good to pass up. For a little added spice add in 1/4 tsp or more of cayenne pepper , optional , ofcourse.
8 oz fresh spinch leaves , chopped
1 cup grated potato
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 cup chickpea flour
Salt and pepper , to taste
Sunflower oil for deep -frying
Combine all the ingredients except the oil in a bowl , add enough water to make a thick batter.
Heat the oil in a large , heavy frying pan and drop in a tablespoon of mixture. Cook , turning , until lightly browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels and keep warm while you make the rest.
Continue to fry the fritters in batches until the batter is used up , and serve hot.
