Recipe Notes

*Ensure the oil is hot before you release the cabbage fritters into the frying pan.
*Make a thick batter; if the batter is runny the fritters will not hold their shape and just soak up oil.
*Don’t crowd the frying pan; just fry a few pakoras at a time so that the pakoras cook well and brown uniformly.
