Cabbage Garelu

Cabbage Garelu

I am posting garelu recipe as festive season was started. Every time making the plain garelu will be boring and even though it is oily food we like garelu very much and by adding some veggie to it, not only our tummy but also our mind will satisfy. If your kid don't like cabbage make these garelu so they cannot say no. Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamins. It contain vitamin k, vitamin c, vitamin B6, folate and fiber.

Cabbage Garelu
  • Black gram / Minnapa pappu - 1 cup
  • Cabbage - 1/4
  • Onion - 1
  • Chillies - 3 (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Jeera / Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Oil to fry

  • Clean black gram / minnapa pappu with running water and soak for 3 to 4 hours or over night.
  • Drain the water and clean the black gram / minnapa pappu once again.
  • Grind into thick paste by adding little water. (Don't add water at a time, add little by little if require)

  • Finely chop cabbage, onion and chillies.

  • Beat the batter to form aeration and to make the batter light. To check the fluffiness add little batter to a bowl of water. If the batter is floating aeration was formed in the batter, otherwise beat the batter again.   If  require add a tsp of water.  (Don't add more water at a time, add little by little if require)

  • Add chopped veggies, cumin seeds / jeera and salt. Mix  well.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Don't let oil smoke. Take water in a bowl to wet your hand.
  • Wet the figures and take small amount of batter and make into ball and flatten it on a plastic paper and make a hole in it at the middle.
  • Drop it into hot oil carefully and cook on medium heat until it turns golden brown on both sides.

  • Take them on to a tissue paper to absorb excess oil.
  • Serve hot with chutney or sambar or simple chicken curry.
