If you are making often just some crunchy coleslaw or else some easy breezy salads with purple cabbage, you should definitely have to take a look to this crispy fritters aka TamilNadu style masala vadais. Masala vadas are quite a streetfood which can be found easily in every corner tea shops all over Tamilnadu. Masal vadas is usually prepared with channadal along with few spices, however many sort of variations do exists. One can add some grated vegetables or greens to make vadas more delicious and healthy to feed kids easily with vegetables or greens. And my today’s post is one among those vegetable loaded fritters aka purple cabbage masala vadas. Cabbage is one of my favourite vegetable but at home its quite a struggle to feed my kids with this leafy vegetable.

Cabbage Masal Vada

If i want to feed my kids easily with vegetables or greens, i will definitely opt for their favourite foods like noodles, vadas or else pastas. They just cant discard the vegetables this way. However adding vegetable in vada batter is definitely one of the best way to sneak vegetables as well. Am running this week’s blogging marathon with ‘Deep fried Love’ as theme. After some gorgeous Boston cream donuts, am posting this dangerously delicious, very addictive cabbage loaded channadal fritters for this week’s theme. And this vadas are completely onion free as shredded cabbages replace the chopped onions very well in this vadas.
