Four or five large potatoes, diced
One onion (or three shallots), sliced or diced
Four or five handfuls of spinach, roughly chopped
Mix the vegetables in a large bowl. Add half a teaspoon each of turmeric, ground coriander and chilli powder. Add a rounded teaspoon each of ground cumin and sea salt. Grind in some black pepper. Mix well with your hands. Add 300g of gram flour, mix, then add a few drops of water, mixing all the time, until you can form clumps with the mixture.
Heat up a large, deep-sided frying pan with oil. When the oil is really hot, drop in four or five balls of the sticky vegetable mix (about a heaped tablespoon per pakora). Cook for 4-5 minutes until nicely browned, then keep warm in the oven while you do the rest.
