Got this recipe from chatali, from a forum, tried it n got it quite well. Like mostly all indian snacks this too is deep fried, but can be cooked shallow fried too, tastes equally yumm.
I would specially mention the varoius flavours(spices) added to it , are really mouthwatering, they give such a nice taste and freshness to the snack.
4 cups cabbage, grated
1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander,
1 cup besan (gram flour)
1/2 cup jowar/ bajra/ ragi mixed or just wholewheat flour ,
1/2 cup semolina,
1.5 tsp chilli powder,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp sesame seeds,
1 tsp powdered fennel seeds (saunf) ,
1 tsp garam masala powder,
1/2 tsp sugar,
salt to taste,
oil for frying
Mix all the above ingredients and form a dough by adding very little water at a time ,
If you find the mixture too sticky just oil your palms well and then handle the dough,
You can divide the dough into 2 or 3 portions,
Shape them into elongated logs and place them in an oiled steel vessel .
Steam in the cooker for 15 mnts or steam in microwave steamer for 5 minutes
let the steamed dough cool, After it has cooled completely cut it into slices as thick or thin as you want,
Heat some oil on a tawa(griddle) and shallow fry these pieces (Wadis) or deep fry in hot oil.
Tip: Just in case you add too much water and you cannot form elongated logs simply turn out the batter into an oiled steel vessel ,(as done for making dhoklas) and spread it out evenly.
If u are health consious, can just eat steamed slices, with tempering of oil,mustard seeds, a pinch of asafoetida and sesame seeds
