Thanks for Ur Support.

If u have Spinach at home,try this Microwave-roasted (Spicy gram flour coated Spinach or ) Spinach Packoras to serve with Tea.For this Spinach Pakora(da),U need to spare 10 mins extra time in the Kitchen.U can try this recipe as side-dish for Sambar or Rasam and Plain Rice.I found Aachi bajji bonda mix very aromatic and extra-ordinary.I f u don't like trying with it,use plain or the besan flour which U find good enough - then add 1/4 tsp Asafoetida to it and mix it well with other mentioned spices.Try this recipe at home!.Enjoy ur teatime.BonAppetit!.
