It is a legendary street food recipe from the streets of Coimbatore. it is also known as roadside Kalan. It is such a flavour-packed snack. Though the name says Kalan, it’s made with a combination of cabbage and mushrooms. The cabbage adds a nice volume to the dish as well as flavour. The mushroom cabbage pakoda is deep-fried – the golden crispy fritters soak in and absorb the spicy flavours of the gravy. In a wide bowel add the chopped mushrooms and cabbage along with corn flour, maida, chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry masala powder, garam masala and salt. The flavour of Indochinese sauce is main responsible for this street food flavour. Mix everything thoroughly by using clean hands, both mushrooms and cabbage contains a lot of water, do not add more water just sprinkle to make a dough otherwise the pakoda will be soggy. This is best idea for evening snack.
