Come monsoon, and our hearts yearn for crunchy, crispy, spicy and steaming hot pakodas! Although one never tires of having the usual pakodas as often as possible, there are times when we yearn for a change. Cabbage Pakodas are the perfect choice for those days. With an unmistakable oriental identity, these Chinese Pakodas are made with a mixture of veggies and flours perked up with green chillies, ginger and garlic in appropriate forms, to get a mouth-wateringly spicy and crunchy snack. Make sure you deep-fry these pakodas on a slow flame so that they cook well inside, and serve them hot with Schezuan sauce, as that is the best accompaniment for this irresistible snack.
