Palak Chakali~ Blog Hop #6

Posted in : Bachelor Recipes, Deep Frying, Festive Cooking, Ganesh Festival Recipe List, Indian Cuisine, Kid Friendly, Simple and Healthy Vegetarian Diet in Old Age, Snack on by : admin Tags: , , , , , , ,

F or today’s Blog Hop the brain child of Radhika I am paired with Suchitra of  Simple Indian Food. Not only does Suchitra have an enormous number of recipes she has also featured new budding bloggers in her blog.
I have bookmarked quite a few recipes to be tried later.  But being festive season I was keen on trying some savories. But savories I wanted had to have some health quotient in them, what better way to have them but to add veggies.

So I decided to try Palak Sev.  I started to make the sev only to discover the sev disc was missing and only the chakali disc was there. Hence I settled to make chakalis.
The original Sev is here I made changes to suit our tastes.
The quantity I made was very small for I start coughing when I fry but the aroma of the frying chakali was enough to draw all the family in the kitchen.
2 cup besan
1 cup rice flour
1/2 tsp ajwain
1 bundle palak
2 cloves garlic
A few springs of coriander
1 green chilli
2 tsp butter
1.   Wash and steam the palak in the micro for 2 minutes on high.
2.   Refresh by soaking in iced water for 2 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
3.   Next transfer the palak, green chilli, garlic and coriander in the mixer and grind to a fine paste. In case the mixture does not reach the blades add the dry flour about 1 tblspn and grind in no case should you add water.
4.   Heat the oil in a kadhai/wok
5.   Mix all the ingredients except the oil and knead well.
6.   Fill in the chakali press and on a plastic squeeze out the chakali.
7.   Slide carefully in the hot oil and deep fry both the sides on low flame till done.
