During Fasting or Vrat, you can make Fried Palak ki chaat made with Singhare Ka atta. Serve this Palak Pakore as a chaat during the Fasting/Vrat days. This pakora is made with Singhare ka atta and is served with Sonth Ki Chutney.
For the second day of street food, I made this Fried Palak ki chaat considered as a Vrat Recipe. During fasting days, I read that they use this Singhare ka Atta or water chestnut flour for cooking. So making these pakoras with this flour makes it a suitable Vrat Snack.
I adapted this recipe from NDTV, reading which made me feel it's very easy and quick to make. Of course, the recipe is simple to make, only I took forever to make it. Also, the palak we are getting at this time are really huge ones and to dip the entire leaf, felt I have to use loads of oil. So I used an almost flat frying pan and used a little oil to deep frying the single leaf in batches.
As expected boys didn't even touch it. We enjoyed it so much, especially the sweet curds which is something I always make for chats, gave this a wonderful taste.
