Take a bowl, mix besan, rice flour, salt and chilli pwd. Add green chillies,onions , cabbage, cumin and mix thoroughly, add couple of table spoons of water( cabbage and onions already has moisture in it) mix well. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and drop it one by one, around 4/5 at a time. Fry it till golden brown. serve hot.
Serving the kids: Before adding the green chillies and chilli pwd. I make couple of pakodas and serve the kids. Then, I add my regular ingredients and continue the process. so the kids can enjoy it too..
Reduce the amount of spice instead of totally avoiding it, or it will taste bland.
