Cabbage, the leafy, layered vegetable disguised in the form of pakoda, a deep fried snack !! It’s this veggie which happen to appear quite a less number of times at my home. I would say cabbage is some how sidelined. I am clueless why it is so!! May be the kids aren’t big fan of this veggie or may be me even. The simple cabbage potato curry and stirfry is what I regularly make with this veggie, has lost interest now. Meaning the taste buds of my family have raised over the staple dish and look for something new and fancy out of it. I do try to accommodate all kind of veggies in my cooking so that goodness of all, gets in. But it’s really a challenge to turn a vegetable to new dish each time. Little love and passion towards food and cooking would definitely favor the process. Hence this cabbage pakoda, happened early evening today.
If you are a snack lover or in specific a pakoda lover , then you must try this cabbage pakoda at least once. Because the cabbage shreds along with few carefully chosen spices, it is a perfect snack for the evening. With a cup of tea/coffee, it tastes way too awesome. The quantity of cabbage shreds have to be little more than gram flour. The veggie has some moisture too, so I would advice not to rush in adding water. Normally I mix up the gram flour, rice flour, all spices and veggie together to anticipate the water quantity required. By sprinkling water little by little, I finally end up with perfect non sticky, stiff dough.
So, if you have a piece of cabbage lying in the refrigerator right now, head towards kitchen to whip this cabbage pakoda as tea time snack. I will catch you up right there!!
