The moment I saw these on Chitra’s Blog, Ratatouile, I was salivating so much, I simply had to make them right- away – but then I was doing the blogging marathon with a 30 minute meal theme and I was unable to carry out my craving for these. Then a day or two later, I saw a similar post on Cool Lassies blog as we were doing a blogging Marathon together and I said. That’s it! I gotta make these regardless of when I will blog them and that my friends is a long story capsuled into a few sentences. This is a gratified me now blogging this after over a week J Seems to be the second fried recipe in a row, but I have gotten back to uber healthy recipes and these will follow to cleanse and detoxify the fried recipes to which I have and you will probably surrender to once you see these yummies.
Well, my mate-ees, for those of you who have children who absolutely hate cabbage (like I do), this is a neat way to serve them!
2 cups of urad dal
4-5 green chilies
2-3 Red dried Cayenne chilies
½ of cilantro
1 cup of grated cabbage
1 red onion sliced thin
A pinch of asafetida
1 stem of curry leaves
Soak all of the above (except the cabbage and onions) in 2 cups of warm water for about an hour or 2
Grind coarsely in a food processor using no water or the very minimal amount to get the blender going.
In the meantime, chop your onion and grate the cabbage
In a pan, ever so slightly dry roast both
Remove ground mix and put in a wide mouth container. Add the cabbage, onion and the required amount of salt and mix in well
The batter should be thick but well ground, by which I mean the Urad dal should be paste.
Keep Oil to fry
In the meantime, get a cup of water handy.
Now wet or dampen your fingers you will use to scoop a ball of the batter and the opposite palm with some water.
Once the ball of batter is on the palm, gently flatten and press a hole in the middle.
Now flip back to the other fingers and slide drop into the hot oil
Repeat process. Turn to cook both sides until golden brown
Voila and Ta-dah…..
