Cabbage Pakoras

Ever since it's been raining, I've been craving cabbage pakoras, but have been too lazy to make it. So I decided to share the recipe so someone can make it for me and send it my way...muahaha


2 cups of cabbage, shredded
1-2 green chillies, chopped fine
1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp cayenne (red chilli) powder
~1 ½ cups of besan (gram flour)
a pinch of baking soda
vegetable oil for frying


1.Using a little water to make a thick batter with the besan, salt and the spices. Mix well to remove lumps.

2. Add the sesame seeds, the green chillies and the shredded cabbage.

3. Heat oil in a wok. The oil should be very hot for frying pakoras. Test with a drop of batter; it should sizzle.

4. Add the pinch of baking soda and a teaspoon of hot oil from the wok to the batter and mix well.

5. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil and fry till golden all around.

Serve hot with ketchup or with coriander-mint chutney
