Cabbage Pakoda- Crispy Cabbage Fritters- Gluten Free Snack

A crispy snack with cabbage and it’s gluten-free…

Food has always been a way for me to connect with my roots, memories, and family. Many a time, Nostalgia is a key ingredient for me while cooking. This cabbage pakoda and sulaimani took me down memory lane.

On a rainy day, I crave crispy fried snacks and I’ll be seen enjoying along with my favorite cardamom chai. This recipe is quite similar to Onion fritters or Ullivada, a popular evening snack in Kerala. I’ve used gluten-free flours like gram flour & corn starch for binding the mixture. The addition of corn starch will make these fritters crispy.
