BM #104 Day 18 - 

To conclude this week of our family favorite snacks, here are Palak Pakoda. 

We always made palak bajji until recently. A few years back, my friend served palak pakoda and she said they were from the frozen section of the local grocer. They were very flavorful and not a hint about being a frozen product.

When I was finalizing the list of snacks, my family reminded me of the palak pakoda. So I had to include it in this series. 
Here is a recap of the previous sweets and snacks in this series..

  1. Palak pakoda in this rainy weather is a perfect snack Harini. I started growing palak at home as I don't like the ones we get in the market here.

  5. Yummy, crispy pakodas. I am more of a pakoda person than bajji one though I end up making them very rarely. :)) I can understand why your family wanted you to include these in the series.
