Cabbage pakoda recipe with step by step pictures, full video. Pakoras or pakoda with cabbage as main ingredient. Besan/ gram flour, rice flour with other spices added for flavour makes best evening snack perfect to pair with coffee/ tea.
I used to make onion pakoda often, it has been a while since I made pakoda. Have been thinking to try and post cabbage pakoda as many readers keep searching for cabbage pakoda in raks kitchen. I have tried cabbage pakoda few times before. The first time I tasted at my cousin brother’s place. Until then, I had no idea one can make cabbage pakoda. It was super good.
When I made it for snack time when my inlaws were here, it was a super flop. I added too much of cabbage and tried the way I make onion pakoda. Where I just add besan and rice flour to coat the onion so that we get crispy pakoda. But that method was not the right way for cabbage. I never realized that. Later, I tried with more batter and reduced the cabbage amount. It turned out perfect.
I have tried with readymade aachi bajji bonda mix too. Its quite simple and quick. But when I have no instant bajji mix, make it from scratch and its always better than the instant bajji mix.
