Onion-Cabbgae Fritters/Pakora

Rainy days,Winter or Summer ...who does not like the smell and taste of crispy yummy hooot pakoras?

I always love a plate of hot pakora as it is or with any sauce or chutney..this is my favorite snack all the time :)
I prepared this combo of Onion and Cabbage pakoras recently  as I wanted to use little cabbage lying in the refrigerator.
You can try the same recipe of cabbage  pakora without onion or with spinach...that goes well too!!
When I want to eat onion pakoras but little fluffy ones and soft ones then I prepare in a different way. I shall share that recipe soon.

Try this and enjoy :)



Onion Cabbage Pakora Fritters


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Cabbage, sliced
  • 1/2 cup Onion, sliced
  • 3/4 cup Gram Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Warm Oil
  • 1 Tsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 2 Green Chillies, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • a pinch of Asafoetida
  • a pinch of Sugar
  • 1/4 Tsp Carom Seeds
  • a handful of chopped Cilantro
  • Oil for frying
  • Water as per need

Method:
  •  In a bowl, mix together gram flour,salt,sugar,cornstarch,turmeric powder,asafoetida,carom seeds,warm oil.
  • Add water little by little to make smooth paste out of this mixture. Do not make the paste too thick nor runny as in both cases the texture of pakoras will vary.
  • Now add remaining ingredients to this mixture and make the mixture without any lumps.
  • In a skillet or deep frying pan , add oil. When the oil is hot slowly add one pakora at a time. At the max add around 5-6 pakoras depending on the size of frying pan.
  • Fry these till crispy golden.
  • Drain on paper towel.
  • Serve hot with sauce or chutney of your choice.



Tips:
  • You can combine lot of other leafy vegetables to make pakoras. This way you can serve lot of vegetables too.
  • Never overcrowd the frying pan with pakoras as they need some space to bloom when frying in oil.
 Enjoy Eating!! :)
