Cabbage-Onion Pakora – A quick and easy appetizer for your New Year's Eve

Planning a last-minute New Year's Eve party? Hoping to give a calm and private welcome to the year with Netflix and snacks? Whichever way you choose, we got your back. Here is a quick and easy finger food that will go perfectly with both the plans.

This fusion snack, made of cabbage, onions, gram flour and spices, would go well with whatever beverage you choose to have - be it hot or cold. The crunchy, fried pakoras are super easy to make too.


1/2 purple or green cabbage
1 onion
1/2 cup gram flour
1/2 cup rice flour
3 tbsp corn flour
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
Oil for frying


Shred and chop the cabbage
Chop the onion into small pieces
In another bowl, mix the powdered ingredients (turmeric, chilli powder, cumin powder, garam masala, and salt)
Add this spice mix to the cabbage and onions
Mix well using your hand (wear a glove for good measure)
Squeeze out excess water from the cabbage-onions
Mix the gram, rice and corn flour to it
Add this to the cabbage and onion
Mix well to make sure the veggies are well coated in the flour
Bring it to a thick dough consistency
Heat enough oil to deep fry it in a pan
When the oil is hot enough to splutter, pull small balls of the cabbage-flour mixture from the dough
Drop them in the oil (watch out for splatters)
Deep fry the balls while stirring occasionally
Keep the flame on medium while frying
Once the turn golden brown, take them out and drain off the excess oil using tissues
Enjoy the crunchy fritters with a chutney or dip
