Cabbage Pakora (Crispy Fritters) | Patta Gobhi Pakoda

Finally,spring is on its way here and snow showers have gradually changed to rain.The weather is moody,cloudy and cozy too.Watching rains sitting on the window sill is a childhood fun which I loved most.However,sill is now changed to a chair and nothing else has changed.Kids love this scene too.How about munching something warm and hot to enjoy in this weather?? I love that too.Garam garam chai(piping hot tea) and pakoras(crispy fritters) make a perfect combo to enjoy in this cozy weather.I had never tried making pakoras with cabbage until recently and so I was a bit apprehensive about the outcome.But after trying these,all loved it very much.They are crispy,mildly sweet and soft pakoras.They serve best with green spicy chutney.The best part of pakora recipes are that they can be tried by anyone,no cooking expertize required.Do try and enjoy !!

cabbage thin chopped 2 cups(200gm)
gram flour(besan) 1 cup
rice flour 2tbsp
chilly powder 1/4 tsp
cilantro chopped 2-3tbsp
ginger grated 1tsp 
green chillies 2 finely chopped
salt 1/2 tsp or slightly more as per taste
oil to deep fry

  • In a bowl,mix the gram flour and rice flour.Add water slowly little by little to make a thick paste without lumps(it may take less than 1 cup water).Now,beat the mixture with a spoon for 3-4 mins to make it soft.
  • Add in the green chillies,grated ginger,chilly powder.Mix well.Finally add the cabbage and cilantro.Add salt and combine well.
  • Heat oil in a wok and when it is hot,add a small drop of batter to check the heat.If it instantly sizzles up,that means the oil is hot enough.Using a spoon,add spoonful of batter in the oil.Add 4-5 spoonful of batter or till you wok is not overcrowded.
  • Turn and flip both sides on medium heat(Don't increase the heat as the outside may turn bown and inside doesn't get cooked.Don't decrease the heat as the pakoras may consume more oil)
  • Fry till golden brown,and drain with a slotted spoon.Place on layers of paper towel.
  • Serve warm crispy pakoras with green spicy chutney (in the pic) or ketchup !!

Serves ~ 4-5 adults

* You can use semolina(sooji) in place of  rice flour.Rice flour is added to adds the crispiness.
* The cabbage should be thinly sliced and the batter shouldn't be made very thin.
