Another snack for the winter season, cabbage pakoras are quick, hot and easy to make.
Preparation time: 15 - 20 mins
Grated cabbage/finely chopped cabbage 1 cup
Finely chopped onion 1
Chick pea flour (Besan/senaga pindi) 2 cups
Curry leaves 4-5
Red chilli powder 1tsp
Cumin powder 1 tsp
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
Salt to taste
Mix to make thick batter: Grated cabbage, onion, chick pea flour, curry leaves, red chilli powder, cumin powder and salt to taste. Both onions and cabbage are watery veggies and will ooze water when squeezed while mixing. Mix first and then add water as required.
In a kadai/pan, heat oil. Make small balls of the dough and deep fry in the oil.
Remove and serve hot with tomato sauce or any of the chutneys and hot chai to sip along. Shall not say more as the pakoras speak for themselves.
