Fried snacks are a favorite in my household.I made this crispy Vada last Sunday and no one really knew it had cabbage in it!No one is a fan of cabbage at home except me. So I never mentioned the cabbage part until the vadas disappread..
Sowmya is hosting Tried and Tasted event highlighting Rak's Kitchen this month.I tried this Cabbage Vadai / Vada from her blog. I have bookmarked many recipes from her site and this is one of them...
I have made a couple of changes from her recipe. I omitted green chillies and added red chilli powder. Lil Angel does not fancy biting into chillies in her favorite vadas.I also added 2 teaspoons of rice flour to the batter.

Coriander leaves- a few , chopped
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry.
- Wash and soak urad dhal for 3 hours. Drain and grind to fine paste in a mixer. Add as little water as possible and scrape out the sides so that the batter is evenly ground and there is no trace of whole urad dhal.
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredient along with the ground batter.
- Heat oil to deep fry.
- Wet your hands and take a small amount of batter.Form a ball and flatten it and make a hole in the center.
- Gently drop it into hot oil.
