Crackling Spinach by Pritha Dutta

How many of you like ‘Crackling Spinach’?!

In her own words — “I first had it in Mainland China years ago and fell in love hook, line and sinker. So much so that had to learn making it myself.”

However, this is how Pritha formulated her own version of Crackling Spinach (not curated from anywhere).




Pritha Dutta is a home cook who also offers some of her condiments under the brand-name ‘PriServes’. She has also been winning hearts through stomachs courtesy her pop up meals.
