ONION PALAK PAKODA

Here it was raining cats and dogs so I was thinking taking a afternoon nap, covering myself with the blanket.
But I did not want to take rest, I knew my daughter Driti will be hungry after her school. I had to make something for her. I thought for half an hour I take some rest. So I relaxed on a reclining chair thinking what I can make for the evening snack. I had Onions and lots of palak leaves in the kitchen... lo onion palak pakodas came out ready by 4 in the evening.
