Bandhakopir Pakora (Cabbage Fritter)


We quite often prepare ‘Bandhakopir Pakora’ or cabbage fritter. Crispy fritters with cabbage and onion tastes awesome when served hot with cup of tea as evening snack. You can also serve this as sides with rice and ‘dal’ too. Usually I prepare this ‘pakora’ with fresh cabbage in winter. But yesterday I couldn’t resist myself but to prepare this fritter due to heavy rainfall in evening. Hope you like the recipe!
