The mildly pungent aroma and flavour of cabbage fits very well into vadas. Combined with a dough of soaked urad dal, along with other flavour enhancers, it makes a crispy south Indian treat that will be loved by all. When shaped in a convenient size, the Mini Cabbage Vadas are ideal for serving to kids, or as a starter in a party. Just make sure you make the vadas as soon as you add the salt, lest the cabbage starts letting out water and the dough becomes watery.
- Clean, wash and soak the urad dal in a deep bowl in enough water for at least 1 hour. Drain well.
- Combine the urad dal, green chillies, asafoetida and ½ cup of water in a mixer and blend till smooth.
- Transfer the batter in a deep bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix very well.
- Wet your hand. Take a portion of the mixture in your hand.
- Make a hole in the centre with your thumb.
- Heat oil in a deep non-stick kadhai, slide and drop the vada in hot oil and deep-fry till it turns golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 19 more mini cabbage vadas.
- Drain on an absorbent paper.
