Cabbage Pakora

Cabbage Pakora

Pakora or Pakoda is a well known appetizer / starter or a tea time snack in India.  Usually, pakora is mainly made with gram flour. But in this cabbage pakora recipe, I have incorporated wheat flour, gram flour and rice flour.

Cabbage pakora is a deep fried crispy snack made with chopped cabbage and onion dipped in a batter of 3 flours. It can be served either as a starter / appetizer, tea time snack or as a side dish for any rice varieties ( Puliyodharai / tamarind rice, Lemon rice, Mango rice, Coconut rice, Peanut rice, Bisebelebath, Tomato rice, Toor dal rice, Mushroom biryani, Curry leaves rice, Mint rice , Cauliflower rice etc., )

Ingredients (serves for 3 )

Cabbage (chopped) - 2 cups [ 1 cup size = 240 ml ]
onion - 2
red chili powder - 1 teaspoon 
wheat flour - 1/4 cup 
gram flour - 1/4 cup
rice flour - 1/4 cup
salt - as needed
asafoetida - 2 pinches
oil - for frying


  • chop onion
  • mix chopped onion, chopped cabbage, red chili powder, wheat flour, gram flour, rice flour, salt and asafoetida together
  • sprinkle some water and mix well. 
  • don't add too much water as cabbage itself will shed some water. just sprinkle some water to bind everything together
  • heat oil 
  • put some cabbage and flour mixture in batches
  • allow it to fry till it becomes crisp. flip it often for even frying on both sides
  • if you take it earlier, pakora will soon become soggy. So allow it to fry for sometime until it becomes crispy
  • serve hot either as a side dish for rice varieties or as a tea time snack.
