Bok Choy Pakora


Bok choy is a Chinese leafy vegetable that I hadnt cooked with before though I had come across many recipes of bok choy along the lines of spinach poriyal/kootu etc. To me bok choy is a hybrid between Indian spinach and cabbage. It is a very nutritious vegetable and I am glad my friend S suggested that we try a recipe with bok choy. S who blogs here [a super creative cooking blog] and also has a super awesome art website here - something I go wow about every time I open it, came up with this fun idea about choosing one healthy vegetable every month that we would cook with and post the recipe on our blogs. So I went ahead, bought bok choy and it was lying in my refrigerator waiting to be made into something. Being in Florida we have these daily evening showers quite often and on one such gloomy and rainy Saturday me and S were in mood for some pakora and chai time in our balcony and that is the story of my bok choy pakora :)
