Vrat Ke Palak Pakora Recipe: How To Make Palak And Kuttu Ka Atta Pakora

By: Sowmya Subramanian

The vrat ke palak pakora is an authentic snack that is prepared in North India, especially during fasts or upvas. These pakoras are made of buckwheat, as normal besan and atta cannot be used at the times of fasts.

The buckwheat has a strong aroma, which combined with spinach and other spices, makes it an utterly mouth-watering snack during fasts. The pakoras are soft and fluffy inside and generally go well with the phalahari green chutney.

The spinach and buckwheat pakoras are quick to make and do not require any special cooking skills to get them right. So, if you would like to prepare the vrat ke palak pakora, continue reading the step-by-step procedure with images and also have a look at the video.
