Tips and Tricks
  • You can use  all-purpose flour instead of gram flour.
  • To prepare the batter, add the water little by little until it forms a semi-liquid and uniform batter. The optimum point of the batter is that it must be neither too liquid nor too thick.
  • Fry the cabbage pakora on a medium flame until they are golden. Too low flame will cause the pakoras to absorb a lot of oil and the high flame will cause them to be undone inside.
