    Cabbage vada about

    Cabbage vada is a spicy and aromatic South Indian snack that is commonly served as an afterschool meal in the evenings. A cabbage vada is a popular snack not only at home, but also in eateries, small teashops, and canteens. It is sometimes prepared as a crispy, crunchy, and delectable lentil fritter similar to parippu vada. However, it can appear like onion bajji at times, with soft textured and tasty when eaten hot.

    Cabbage vada is made by mixing chopped cabbage with some spices, lentils ( or lentil flour) and herbs. It is then shaping it into small balls or vadas. These are then deep fried in oil till golden brown. Cabbage vada is a popular snack in India. It can be served with chutneys or dips, or simply eaten on its own.

    Cabbage Vada - Variations

    In South India, cabbage vadai comes in a plethora of varieties. From my perspective, the version prepared with lentils is crispier and tastier. We can use either garbanzo lentils,  pigeon pea lentils, or a mixture of both to make this lentil vada. Compared to the one with pigeon pea lentil, the one with chickpea lentil is tougher and more crunchier. May I am more familiar with parippu vada, I enjoy the second version more. But do use chickpea lentils if you want the authentic flavor. 

    The second vadai variation is comparable to onion bajji. To begin, the coarsely chopped cabbages are combined with chickpea flour, seasonings, and herbs. After shaping, the vadai is deep-fried in hot oil until golden brown. There is no soaking or grinding necessary with this technique, making it the easiest. Try using this technique to quickly make vadas. Chop the cabbages, sprinkle salt on top, and rub until moist. Then combine additional seasonings with chickpea flour, shape, and fry. This process is fast, requiring just ten to fifteen minutes.

    Tips for making cabbage vada

    Because the method with lentils is challenging and needs some practice, I will describe it today. Perfect soaking, draining, and grinding of the bean are all required. Only you then are able to mold the vada. 

    Use the pulse option as you're grinding the chickpeas. Open the mixer container periodically and give it two or three stirs. As it rests, the cabbages and the shallots will release moisture. Therefore, if you pulverize while adding water. It will be moister than is required. 

    It will be more difficult for you to form the vada mixture if it is more moist than necessary. It will also crack when being fried. Add a little rice flour or chickpea flour in this situation and combine well. Attempt to shape it. If you can correctly shape it, that is, if you can form balls without any cracks, then the consistency of the batter is correct. If not, add more flour and try again. 

    Make sure the oil is hot enough before you begin to cook the vada. You can choose any veggie oil you want to use. Once the oil becomes hot, keep it at medium. When you fry the vadais over a high flame, the inner part will remain raw or uncooked while the outer crust quickly browns.
