Cabbage pakoda Recipe with step by step photos – another easy and tasty fried snack of cabbage fritters that can be made quickly. A vegan recipe.

Whilst growing up, mom would make different types of Pakora and cabbage pakoda was one of them. She would serve them piping hot with mint-coriander chutney and tomato sauce. Bread would accompany the cabbage pakora and we would finish up everything before the next batch of pakoras came.

Living and growing up in Mumbai, I was exposed to a variety of food and cuisines, not only outside, but also in my home. My mom often used to try new recipes and make them for us. Even today she tries new recipes and makes them at home.

The recipe for making Cabbage pakoda is simple and easy. While making pakoras, I always avoid adding baking soda to the batter. I do not like the taste of the pakoras when baking soda is added to it. If you want to add baking soda in this recipe, you could do so.

To make these crisp and tasty pakoras, you can either use the regular green cabbage or red-purple cabbage. The pakoras taste good with either of them. Adding onions is optional. For a no onion version, just skip the onions.

Serve these golden crisp cabbage fritters with green chutney or mint chutney or tomato ketchup.

How to make cabbage pakoda

1. In a bowl, add finely chopped cabbage, finely chopped onions, chopped green chilies and finely chopped ginger.

3. Add water to make the batter. The batter should not be thin. The batter should be of medium-thick consistency. Check the seasoning. If salt or the spiciness is less, accordingly add salt or chili powder.

4. Heat oil in a pan or kadai. Keep the flame medium. When the oil becomes hot, take a spoonful of the pakora batter and pour it in the oil.
