Cabbage Moong Dal Pakoda or Moong Lentil Fritters are popular fried Indian snacks made using moong dal batter, cabbage, onion, herbs, and seasoning. Crispy on the outside and soft inside, they are perfect for your gatherings big or small.
These Pakoda/Fritters are my absolute favorite snack, especially during the rainy season.
They are lighter than our ‘besan pakora/chickpea fritters’ as chickpeas are slightly heavy to digest.
Also, adding cabbage to these Moong Dal Bhajiya (another name for it) makes them endlessly crave-able.
The ingredients are as follows:
Cabbage – thinly chopped
Yellow Moong Dal – soaked in water for a minimum of 2 hrs or more and then batter made out of it.
Onion – thinly chopped
Mixed Herbs – like mint, cilantro or you can use either of them.
Green Chili – thinly chopped (optional)
Spices – salt, turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala
Once we have these simple ingredients, we start by first sieving the water from soaked moong dal (keep aside a cup for using in batter).
Then we grind the Moong Dal in a thick batter.
Then add chopped cabbage, onion, herbs, and spices.
Mix everything evenly.
Now, heat oil in a pan.
Using a large spoon or hand, add 6-7 fritter size batter in the hot oil (be careful with hot oil).
Let this fry in medium heat for 2-3 minutes until golden brown on both sides.
Once done, remove the hot Moong dal pakora to a kitchen towel to soak any excess oil.
Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy with favorite chutney like below:
