Tofu Spinach Fritters/Tofu Palak Pakoras

Though am keeping myself away from deep frying, sometime the weather or else the craving for deep fries will definitely pull you to dish some fritters atleast once a while in a month.We, blogging marathoners are running a month of blogging with Protein rich dishes as theme, obviously you might have noticed that i have been posting some delicious protein rich recipes. Actually this interesting theme is pulling us to hunt for some healthy proteinaceous foods or else to come up with unique protein friendly foods. My today's recipe is completely an interesting snack food which i prepared with some extra firm tofu, along with chopped spinach, onions and sliced potatoes. When mixed with gramflour and rice flour, trust me you will get some dangerously addictive pakoras which suits prefect to munch with a cup of masala tea or coffee. None will notice the addition of chopped extra firm tofu and trust me you can feed easily tofu to your family members by this way.
