Palak Sev Chaat

Cooking Time Required: 10-15 mins
Cost of Preparation: 15-20 rupees

Ingredients: Paalak/Spinach ( a bunch ), besan/gram flour (8-10 tsp ), sev bhujia ( 1 cup), baking powder ( 1/5 tsp ), curd/yogurt ( 4-5 tsp), sugar ( 1-2 tsp ), cumin
powder ( 1/5 tsp), salt to taste, oil for frying, sweet/spicy tamarind chutney (
optional, to taste).

Preparation: Wash and cut the paalak into strips.

Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the besan, baking powder, cumin powder and salt to
taste. Sprinkle a few drops of water if required to bind the besan with the leaves.

Beat the yogurt with sugar and 2 tsp of water.

Cooking: Heat oil in a wok/deep vessel.

Add the palak strips to the hot oil. Fry on both sides for 1-2 mins. Remove from wok
and keep aside on a plate.

Add the sev bhujia generously over the palak pakodas. Sprinkle a little sweetened curd and sweet/spicy tamarind chutney.

Tasty Palak Sev chaat is ready to be served hot.

Note: I had to make the palak pakodas with very little besan and a bit of cornflour as i realized that i had ran out of a very vital ingredient at the 11th hour. Had made up my mind by that time to have the chaat so went ahead and made it. But i can vouch that the version i had a friend's place with ample amount of besan was better.
