  • Coriander leaves: 1 bunch(small)
  • Oil for deep frying
Method:
  1. Wash and cut the spinach leaves.
  2. Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients except oil. Add little water so that the mix coats the leaves.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and check by dropping a little batter into the oil. It should rise immediately.
