Cabbage pakoda

Cabbage pakoda is a very good appetizer/snack.I had already written this recipe but i haven't included the pic yet.Now i am updating with pic and posting it again friends!!


chopped cabbage 3 cups

Besan powder 1 cup
rice flour 1/4 cup

chopped onions sleekely and long length 2 cups

chopped green chilles 10

chopped coriander and curry leaves(optional)

water necessary

salt to taste


1. First take a large bowl and mix all the above ingredients except water and oil .

2.Be careful while adding water,add very less amt of water( Add required water )inorder to make the batter tight but not loose ..

3.Take a pan and put on medium heat and once the moisture is gone in the pan add oil for frying till 1/2 to 3/4 th of the pan.

4.once the oil gets heated ..take a spoon and drop the batter in the form of a small dough (size of tea spoon) into the oil till the pan is filled with pakodas.

5.once bubbling around the pakoda is stopped turn the pakoda onto other side and do the same and make sure that every pakoda is fried.

6.Remove fried pakodas from the pan and place it on a paper towel.

7.Serve hot cabbage pakodas to your guests/loved ones.

Note:If the batter is tight , pakoda takes less oil for frying and it will be crispy too!!

  12. hallo Lavanya, a blog about spices is hard to come by, and would love to learn some more about classic Indian spices in cooking.
    For example, "Lesser Galanga", is it same as "Sand Ginger" and what about "Zedoary" ? I have been looking for it in Indian stores here in Germany, but just found "Greater Galanga", could I use it instead "Sand Ginger" in a recipe?

    Thank you!
