My son absolutely loves these latkes. They've replaced palak pakora as his favorite fritter. We find though that they are a tad bland if made as per the recipe. (this may be because I use frozen spinach. I find frozen tastes different from fresh) I increase the cumin and coriander to a rounded tablespoon each. I bake them on oiled parchment for 20 min each side at 400F, making sure I flatten them well. They come out crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside. My daughter and I like to eat them with tamarind chutney. Very yummy, thank you.

Very good. I made half of the recipe fried and the other half baked. The fried ones were awsome, but the baked one stuck to the baking sheet. The flavor is excelent though
