I have a close friend of mine who is from Hyderabad and they cook a very delicious dish, Cabbage Vada. First time when I went to their home, I wonder how the taste would be, but to my surprise it was dainty and to my surprise it is only a shallow frying of vadas and not deep frying. Then, I got the recipe from them and I have presented here. Hope you all will also enjoy the wonderful and

Preparation Time1 hour
Cooking Time 30 mins

Shredded Cabbage1 Cup
Channa dal3/4 Cup
Thur dal1 tablespoon
Urid dal1 tablespoon
Rice1 teaspoon
Green Chillies2
Ginger1 inch piece
Chopped Coriander leave2 tablespoon
Green Chillies2
SaltTo taste
Oil1/4 Cup

  1. Soak the dals along with rice in water for atleast 1 hour

  2. After 1 hour, wash and drain the water. Take 1 handfull of dals in a mixer and add green chillies, salt and ginger and grind it to a smooth paste. Then add the remaining dals and give a pulse or two and switch off the mixer

  3. Take the ground vada batter in a bowl and add shredded cabbage, chopped onion and coriander leaves 

  4. Mix the batter well and adjust the salt if needed

  5. Heat a pan, add oil. We are going to shallow fry the vadas as against the normal procedure of deep frying. When the oil is hot enough, take a small ball of vada batter and make small patti and then gently add the vadas to the pan and keep the flame in medium and fry the vadas

  6. Gently turn the vadas to other side and fry them evenly

  7. Remove the fried vadas and place it in paper towel to drain excess oil. Repeat the above 2 steps for rest of vadas.
  8. The yummy and crispy cabbage vadas are ready to serve with hot coffee/tea
