Traditional Pakoras filled with Cabbage - Recipe | Chef in frame

This is my First Recipe/Post on the Blogger Platform. If you've known me before, I was doing all recipe sharing stuffs on Wordpress.com since 4 months. There was kinda restriction there, as it was Free. I wanted to change the look of my blog, the width, the style, the layout etc.. which wasn't allowed to do on Wordpress.com, only you were allow to choose the fixed premade themes there (free & premium both) but you can't play with HTML codes and make some custom changes plus there's also the trammel on Java script codes. While if I wanted to do all this stuff on Wordpress.com, the only option there was to get a Host and install Wordpress software there from Wordpress.org which is free but you have to pay hosting on monthly or yearly basis.
Well, long story short I didn't want to take a Rupee/Penny out of my pocket to take risk initially. I choose Blogger the independent platform and transfer my all stuffs from Wordpress to Blogger, all by myself. Yayhh! Some of you may think I'm fool or something but I'm really proud of it. It was a great experience anyway. What I've learned, and found some new stuffs in that phase is another story which I'll soon come up with on next post. Until now you enjoy these Pakoras with tamarind chutni or ketchup or any of your favorite dip. Let me give you my trick -these hot pakoras are also well suit with evening tea. ;)


Desi Pakoras filled with Cabbage - Recipe | Chef in frame

As you know of all these desi Pakoras, made by loading 75% gram flour in onion, herbs and spices then mixtured with water which almost look like a cake batter. Then deep fried in oil until golden brown and perfectly cooked from inside, which usually takes 5 to 10 minutes. There's nothing to do in that time but stood over fry-pan, poke at these golden ball playing in the hot oil.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/3 cup gram flour (preferbly sifted)
  • 1 cup shredded Cabbage
  • 1/2 tsp salt (as per taste)
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 litre oil (for frying)

Method:

1-Place frying pan over stove on medium low heat, pour oil and let it hot up.
2-Make a lumpless mixture with all the ingredient given above (except oil) in a mixing bowl.
3-Pour 1 tsp of batter side by side in the hot oil. (be sure to leave some space, so will not stuck to eachothers)
4-Fry them for 5 to 10 min, until golden and crisp.
5- Drain the excess oil.from pakoras by let them sit over paper towels.
