Fish Pakora



Instead of normal pakora, why don’t you try fried fish pakora!

It is quick and easy, I used frozen white fish to make these!

Just mix chickpea flour, salt, chilli flakes, cumin powder, coriander, and chopped spinach in a bowl with water to form a paste, mix in fish gently, so they are covered with the paste, and deep fry!
