Chef Tips:

  1. To remove the bitterness from the chopped Mustard greens and fenugreek leaves, sprinkle salt and mix well and set them aside for 2 minutes. Squeeze them and discard the water.
  2. I don’t prefer adding baking soda to the pakoras therefore I have added yogurt which helps the ingredients to blend well but acts as a leavening agent thus making the pakoras light and fluffy.
  3. You may add chopped spinach 1/4th cup, if desired.
