To make the Spinach and Onion Pakhoras from Coconut Grove:
Long slices of raw onion
Chopped and washed spinach (ok to still be a bit wet)
Chickpea flour (same as Besan or gram flour)
Salt to taste
Chilli powder to taste
Cumin powder to taste
Frying oil (Vegetable, canola or olive)
In a bowl, toss all the above ingredients (except oil). Add a little water to create a mixture but not a lot to avoid splattering during frying . Create small balls out of this mixture in your palm and deep fry .
This is a very simple recipe and other vegetables such as potato and capsicum can be used to make pakoras. The word "Pakora "is synonymous with " Bhajji" .
