Cabbage Fritters

Cabbage Vadai(fritters)
Hearing vadai itself the soaking, grinding,,,long procedure comes to mind.. here is a method for making instant vadais or fritters... using vegetables...... According to me its healthy and nutrisious.

Ingredients for making Cabbage Fritters(Vadai):
  • half Cabbage - Washed and shredded finely
  • Green chilly - 2 (according to taste)
  • Salt (according to taste)
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece(peeled and cut finely)
  • Broiled Bengal Gram Dal /Pottukadalai/Dahlia - 2 cups
  • Curry leaves - few (optional)
  • Anise Seeds - 1/2 Teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 Teaspoon
  • Water - Little just to sprinkle and make a dough
  • Cooking oil - for deep frying the fritters

Method for making cabbage Fritters/Vadai:

Step 1: Wash and shred the cabbage finely,cut the green chili,ginger and curry leaves.

Step 2: Dry Grind the Broiled Bengal Gram Dal in to fine powder. Remove in to a mixing bowl and add the cut cabbage,chili,ginger, salt,curry leaves and mix well and then sprinkle little water and bind them to a dough .

Step 3: Heat a deep frying pan with cooking oil.

Step 4:Grease your hand with little water or room temperature oil. Take a small amount of dough in hand flatten and shape it in to patties (vadai).

Step 5: Deep Fry it in oil. When its nice golden brown remove from oil and drain out the excess oil from the fritters...

Step 6: Its ready to serve.

can serve this as snacks with hot tea or as starters.. or just add on to your regular lunch or dinner as side dish. This is a nice way to include the vegetables to our diet.. especially with kids when they say no no to veggies and yes yes to deep fried stuffs...

Note: If making this fritters for kids.. PS adjust the spiciness according to your kids taste.

the given ratio will yield approx 15 medium sized fritters/vadai.
