Ingredients to make Cabbage Vadai

  • Channa dal – 1/2 cup
  • Toor dal – 1/4 tbsp
  • cabbage – 1/2 cup (Thinly Chopped)
  • Red chillies – 8
  • Kashmiri Chillies – 4(optional)
  • ginger – 1tbsp (Grated)
  • curry leaves – a sprig
  • coriander leaves – 3 tbsp
  • Asfoetida – 1/2 tsp
  • salt – as per your taste
  • oil – for deep frying

How to make Cabbage Vadai

  1. Wash and soak the channa dal and toor dal couple of times and soak them in enough water for 2hours. I soaked the chillies along with the dal so it will be easy for grinding.
  2. After 2 hours, drain the water completely and grind them into coarse paste. Do not add water while grinding. Transfer this to a wide bowl.
  3. To the ground paste, add in finely chopped cabbage, curry leaves, corainder leaves,salt,asafoetida and grated ginger. Mix them all well.
  4. Heat oil in a kadai and when it is hot enough, take a lemon size portion of the dough and make them into patties. Transfer this to hot oil and fry these in medium flame. Stir them frequently for even coloring.
  5. When they are golden brown, drain the oil completely and place the in a kitchen tissue. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough.

My Tip:

Cabbage vada is ready to serve.. Serve hot with Tomato ketchup, Green chutney or as a side dish. Perfect tea time snack with a hot cup of filter coffee or Tea.

Most of my childhood memory includes getting yelled at by my mother, PunamPaul.Com and eat your veggies; but I used to pay no heed to it. However as time passes, most of us come around to eating vegetables as we are aware of the countless benefits they have for our health. Cabbage is especially one of the world's most nutrient dense vegetables readily available for us to enjoy, rich in essential vitamins such as C, B6, K, saturated fat, thiamine (Vitamin B1), calcium, iron, magnesium phosphorus and a good source of dietary fibers. But I never liked any cabbage recipe other than in noodles. This cabbage recipe when I tried at home was not really appreciated by my family but it was really yummy too. Thanks for sharing this delicious preparation. Keep posting wonderful recipes like this.
