Cabbage Pakoda

Pakoda is usually served as a evening snack during winter along with a cup of herbal tea. The usual pakodas are cashew pakoda and cauliflower pakoda. Today am gonna share the recipe for cabbage pakoda.

Cabbage -2 1/2 cup ( 2 inches length )
Besan flour - 3tbsp
Rice flour - 1 1/2 tbsp
Corn flour - 1 1/2 tbsp
Pakora Masala - 1/2tsp
Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - 2 pinch
Orange food color - 1/4 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying

In a vessel add all the flours, pakora masala, chilli powder, turmeric, food color, asafoetida, salt then add the chopped cabbage. Mix well and sprinkle few drops of water. The flour should just stick to the cabbage. Heat oil in a wok.Take the mixture in the hand and sprinkle them on to the hot oil. Deep fry the pakodas. Crispy pakodas are ready to serve.

Note : Sprinkle very little water at one portion of the mixture and then mix completely.

  9. Excellent recipe. Just tried this and found tasting good. I did this way -- first mix onion chops and cabbage chops well. Add little salt, half spoon chilly powder, and other powders as given in the recipe, mix well first without water. Add very little water and mix again (should be very careful that its like a paste and not liquid) Then deep fry
