no water needed? I try to first foodprocess the cabbage with water, and I saw it was too liquid. So I just mix this to more cabbage (without processing this time, just mixing with a spoon), but still too liquid. I added more corn flour and besan. Still the cabbage and onion dont stick together once in the oil and everything float away. Maybe I shouldnt add water cos the onion release already some moisture?

Excellent recipe. Just tried this and found tasting good. I did this way -- first mix onion chops and cabbage chops well. Add little salt, half spoon chilly powder, and other powders as given in the recipe, mix well first without water. Add very little water and mix again (should be very careful that its like a paste and not liquid) Then deep fry

Sorry for the delayed reply psytek...Chopping with the knife would be a better option while making the pakodas. If you are using a food processor, then you should not use any water as the onions release enough amount of moisture (as you said) and be careful not to grind till smooth.
