Spinach Bhajia (Palak Bhajia)

  • Duration: 15 minutes
  • Serves: 2 to 4 people
  • Spice Level: Low

Authenticity Slice

Remember to not fry the palak bhajia on a high flame as then the mixture will remain uncooked from the inside. Also, do not fry it on a low flame, as then the bhajias will absorb excess oil. Take care to choose big, broad spinach leaves as they ensure better-tasting pakoras.

Trivia Tadka

Palak Bhajia is a popular crispy snack made using fresh spinach leaves that have been mixed with besan. It is a mainstay of North India, especially Rajasthan, where it is made with a lot of spices and is savoured for breakfast.


  • Gram flour (besan) (6 to 8 tsp)
  • MTR Lal Mirch/Red Chilli Powder (1 tsp)
  • Roasted cumin seeds (bhuna jeera) powder (1 tsp)
  • Ginger (adrak), grated (1 tsp)
  • Spinach (palak) (2 cups)
  • MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder (a pinch)
  • Asafoetida (hing) (a pinch)
  • Baking soda (2 pinch)
  • Rice flour (a pinch)
  • Salt (to taste )
  • Oil (for frying )


  • In a big bowl, add the besan, the MTR Lal Mirch/Red Chilli Powder, jeera powder, grated ginger, the MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder, hing, baking soda, salt, rice flour and smoking hot oil. Mix well.
  • Next, add the chopped spinach leaves to this mixture and mix well. Pour in a little water to make it of a slightly thicker consistency.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai. Carefully drop the spinach leaves into the hot oil. Keep turning them intermittently so that they cook evenly. 
  • Drain on absorbent paper and serve immediately topped with chaat masala, and teekhi or meethi chutney.
