1 Cup Maida (All Purpose Flour)
1/2 Cup Corn Flour
1 Medium Onion
1 Medium Tomato
1/4 Cup Sev (om podi)

Tamarind Chutney
Red Chilly Chutney
1 Whole Pomegranate Seeds
2 Tbsp Chaat Masala

If you are lucky to find spinach cleaned and washed in the super market use it if not separate only the leaves from the stem and wash thrice pat dry and reserve.

Peel, wash and chop the onion and tomato as fine as possible and reserve. 

Whip the yogurt till smooth consistency reserve.

In a mixing bowl combine maida, corn flour and salt mix well add little water at a time whisk and prepare a batter.

Heat oil in a wok on low to medium flame allow to reach smoking temperature.

Pat dry the spinach leaves well before dipping in batter. Dip the spinach leaves one at a time in the batter and gently drop in hot oil and fry for a minute on each side.

Once the outer cover or the coating turns crisp drain excess oil and reserve on a paper towel.

Assemble just before serving: In a serving platter place one layer of spinach leaves top it with the whipped yogurt.

Sprinkle salt, followed by tamarind chutney and chilly chutney. Top with onion, tomato and sev, sprinkle chaat masala and paprika serve right away...Enjoy 😊
