Airfried Kale Pakoda

Growing up Pakoda or Fritters were a frequent and favorite treat especially during Monsoon season. We would be outside drenching in the rain and when we would come home, mom would be frying Vegetable Pakodas in the kitchen. After eating those pakodas with hot chai, it would just freshen up entire day. Even today, we make Pakodas during get together or parties and it is a treat to the mouth after feeling the crunch and spice come together.
I am sharing a recipe for Kale Pakodas and these are airfried. It took me a while to perfect this recipe as I wanted it to taste exactly like fried Pakodas. I have to say, I have finally mastered this and have all the measurements down. Checkout the recipe below and tell me what you think.
You can easily replace Kale with Spinach and spinach Pakoda instead.
