  • Place the chopped cabbage and onion in a mixing bowl
  • Add all the spices - Chili powder, Coriander powder, Cumin seeds, Salt, and Asfoetida . Mix well and place it aside for 5-10 minutes
  • Meanwhile, place a deep fry pan over a medium heat and required amount of frying oil (2-3 inch deep).
  • Take small chunks of batter and shape them into 20-25 balls (About 1"-2")
  • Gently flatten the balls to make sure they cook evenly.
  • Make sure the oil is ready for frying by dropping a small piece of batter in oil. It the piece touches the bottom of pan and comes up instantly, the oil is ready.
  • Drop the flattened batter in batches of 5-10 depending on the size of your frying pan.
  • Fry them until they turn golden brown on both sides.
  • Place the vada on a paper towel to allow extra oil to drip and let it cool a little.
