Onion Cabbage Pakoda Recipe – Tasty Tea time snack

Onion Cabbage Pakoda – Tasty Indian Fritters – A tea time snack

Onion Cabbage Pakoda also called as Onion Cabbage Pakora | Pakodi is an Indian snack/appetizer in which thinly sliced onions & cabbage are mixed with seasoned flour and deep fried in oil. This is called as Vengaya Pakoda or Muttai Kos Bakoda in Tamil. Onion pakoras are one of the most common tea time snacks in India. First time ever, I prepared this pakora for a road trip and to my surprise, it remained crispier for about 6 hours. 🙂

Onion pakodas absorb more oil and it tends to get soggier soon. Adding cabbage to the onion pakodas is a good option for a better texture of onion pakoda without changing its flavor & taste. I prepared this dish for a get together, so a few pictures might not show the exact volume given here. I have adjusted the ingredients level for the convenience of readers. This would go great with your evening coffee on a rainy day. 😉
