Delicious Saluyot (Jute Leaves) Fritters

Friend today I will share with you a very delicious but uncommon fritters recipe with you. Yes today a unique awesome fritters with Saluyot that is jute leaves. If saluyot is not very known to you then visit any (specially the Asian ) farmers market and you’ll notice stand after stand filled with bundles of leaves from their you can easily choose sluyot or jute leaves. Look for the fresh, green, smiling leaves. What is in saluyot(jute leaves) that should merit your attention? Firstly, it is rich in beta-carotene for good eyesight, iron for healthy red blood cells, calcium for strong bones and teeth, and vitamin C for smooth, clear skin, strong immune cells, and fast wound healing. In other words, saluyot is a nourishing green leafy vegetable. A very delicious and easy recipe just for you.
Fresh saluyot       4 cups coarsely chopped
All purpose flour  1/ 2 cup
Rice flour             1/4 cup
Baking powder     1/8 teaspoon
Sugar                 11/2 table spoon
Salt and pepper   to taste
Vegetable oil       for deep frying
Choose only the fresh leaves and wash them well. Now chop them coarsely. Take the leaves in a bowl, add all the ingredients. Mix well. Add a little water if needed to make a thick batter. Now heat oil in a frying pan scoop up a table spoon of batter and put to fry in the hot oil. Remove when nicely done, it will turn bit black when deep fried but make sure you don’t burn the fritters to make it black (haha just kidding).Drain thoroughly, and place on absorbent paper. Serve hot. You can have it with any mustard sauce but I love to have it with mango mustard sauce you can get the recipe here. I hope you will try this delicious saluyot(jute leaves) fritters and love it too.

Dear Sutapa
Kemon achho? What a coincidence!! I am just here after a long time and that too after posting PAT SAG BRHA. I wish I had seen this recipe before making the one with the recipe I had. Then I would have made this. It is awesome,the ingredients and method . I am going to the market to get more Jute leaves to try your method.
I have located a bosti ( Ghetto) where Pat sag is available at 1/4 the price of CR park, Delhi..
Let me see what all I have missed.
Bhalo theko
