This recipe is same as usual pakoda recipe. First medium thick consistency batter is made by mixing all the ingredients. And then spoonful of batter is deep fried into hot oil to make delicious, crispy pakoras.
I have added mint leaves in this pakora which give very unique flavor to it. But if you don’t have it then you can skip it.
Winter is started here in my part of world. So this is the right time to make hot pakoda and having it with a hot cup of tea. I have already shared many different pakoda recipes. And this time I thought of making cabbage pakoda.
I do make deep fried food once in awhile (whenever in mood of indulging). Pakoda comes in mind first. That is the reason, you see above long list of recipes shared here.
I have used green chilies as well as red chili powder. You can of course adjust the amount as per your liking spiciness.
