Cabbage fritters are a healthy snack which is very easy to make.
You can use the regular green cabbage or the red cabbage or a combination of both to make these fritters. You can serve these hot fritters with green chutney or tomato ketchup. I mixed the ketchup with a tsp of wasabi sauce and it tasted good.
Ingredients 3/4 cup grated cabbage
2 cm piece ginger
1-2 green chillis
3-4 tbsp chickpea flour
1 tsp asafoetida
1/4 tsp chilli powder
Salt to taste
Water only if needed
Oil for frying
Finely chop the onion, cabbage, ginger, green chilli and curry leaves. Mix together in a bowl.
Add the chickpea flour, asafoetida, chilli powder and salt to the cabbage mix.
Stir and mix well. Add very little water to bind everything together. The batter must be very thick. So add water only if needed.
Heat oil in a pan on medium heat.
Apply water to both hands so that the batter will not stick to the hands. Take a tablespoon of batter in one hand and press with your fingers and make a disc shape.
Add the disc into the hot oil. Fry on medium heat until both sides are brown. Remove from oil and place on a tissue paper to remove excess oil.
