Its monsoons!! The rain gods have been very generous. Yesterday was one of those days. The wind was cool, the leaves on the trees were dancing and the sky was a little overcast! And when it’s such weather we celebrate it with a cup of tea and deep fried pakodas or kebabs! So well I went to the kitchen and saw this big bunch of spinach and decided on making palak kebabs. I had not made them before, but had read the recipe sometime back in a magazine and remembered it just about to make the perfect kebabs!
Enjoy the rainy day 🙂
