Cabbage Vada Recipe | Vada Recipe | Urad Dal Vada | South Indian Snack

     Cabbage vada - a south Indian medu vada made with whole white urad dal and cabbage leaves as the main ingredient.Adding of cabbage made the vada crispy and taste different than usual.The hole made in the center resembles a doughnut shape but is more healthy than the sugary holed sucessor.

   Vadai is a classic south Indian snack or breakfast usually made with urad dal or channa dal.When served with coconut chutney or sambar makes you hungry for more.I love homemade better than hotel.Because homemade absorbs less oil and there will not any baking soda to make your tummy feel full after eating 2-3 hehe.If there is leftover vadai and also some rasam, i make rasa vadai another best snack.

      Making of cabbage vada is similar to medu vadai with the addition of cabbage,onion and some spice.We had a wonderful brunch on saturday along with oats pongal,sambar,coconut chutney.It was a filling and delicious meal.
        I thought the cabbage will leave water after adding to salted batter.So i sauted until all the water is absorbed.In the Final product you can't even find trace of oil even in the tissue paper.With the leftover batter i made some mini crispy bondas for the tea time.I added green chilies for spice,You can add pepper instead.

Step by step picture recipe for making cabbage vadai:

  • Wash and soak urad dal and chana dal for one hour.Grind it to smooth paste along with a green chili, without adding much water(add very little water whenever required) .Batter should be thick.That makes  its easy to pat and make a hole in the center.If its runny then it is difficult for the batter to hold the shape.
  • Chop onion,cabbage to fine pieces(you can also try grating).
  • In a pan add 1 tsp oil.When the oil is hot, add curry leaves then add onions and green chilies.
  • Saute until onion turns translucent.
