To this add gram flour, rice flour. Mix them thoroughly. To this further add mint paste, ginger paste and garlic paste and mix them, until the paste is well incorporates in this.
Now toss your sliced cabbage, onions, curry leaves and fennel seeds. Still maintaining your whole mixture in dry form. Never attempt to add any water to this. (If you add any water to this….it becomes bonda or bajji)
Heat oil in a deep pan. Maintain your stove over medium heat. Just before dropping your pakoras…..sprinkle water very sparingly over your dry mixture.
Its always good to transfer only little of dry mixture to a plate and sprinkle water to it. Instead of all the mixture. One need to transfer the mixture to the plate for each batch. So that we can avoid sprinkling water to all the reserve mixture.
Deep fry them till golden to redish brown color.
Serve hot with hot or tomato sauce.
