Palak Pakode (Spinach Fritters)

Spinach Leaves fried in a chickpea flour/besan batter.  Not an ideal way of eating greens, but I dont mind fried stuff once in a while.

Spinach Leaves
Besan/Chickpea Flour/Gram Flour - 1/2 cup
Cayenne Pepper/Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/4 tsp

In a mixing bowl, add chickpea flour, cayenne pepper, black pepper powder, turmeric and about 1/2 tsp salt.  Adding (about 1/2 cup) water in small amounts, mix to form a slightly thick batter.  Heat enough oil for deep frying.  Dip the (washed and wiped) spinach leaves in the chickpea batter.  Deep fry them till they turn crisp.
