Spinach Bhaji (Fritters)

Spinach, the wonder veggie we learned from "Popeye The Sailor Man" and spinach is a favourite I think in every household, except among the healthy kids who prefer fried chicken, pizza or other fast food. Spinach can be cooked in million ways (spinach sambar/dhal curry, prawn spinach sodhi/coconut gravy, aloo palak, spinach mint soup,cumin spinach tofu and spinach tomato soup) but the kids still won't eat. So, what about bhaji/fritter for the crispy crunch-crunch and that which will disappear as soon as it is fried up. This bhaji if they still won't eat, we shall eat as a side for rice or what about for high five high tea??

1 small bunch spinach - thoroughly wash and sliced into 1 inch length.
1 large onion - slice thinly
1 tsp cumin seeds
3/4 cup besan/kadalai flour
1 tsp rice flour
2 tsp corn flour
Pepper and salt for taste
Oil as needed
Add all ingredients together.
Mix while adding water for a either thick or runny batter, whichever you prefer.
Scoop bit by bit and fry in oil till crispy.
Dish out.
