cabbage paatra recipecabbage paatra recipe | cabbage alu vadi | patta gobi aluchi vadi with step by step photo and video recipe. paatra recipes or pathrode recipe is a common snack recipe made across western and southern india. in western india, the masala or stuffing is made with besan, but in south india it is made with fresh coconut. typically it is made with colocasia leaves or arbi leaves, but it can also be made with other leaves and cabbage paatra recipe is one such option.

i have already shared the traditional pathrode recipe made with arbi leaves. i had already decided the next post should be gujarati style with besan. however, i was not having access to the colocasia leaves and hence i thought of posting an alternative to it. cabbage leaves were an ideal solution as you can easily roll and slice it like a pinwheel. moreover, it is not a seasonal vegetable and can be used at any time of the year to prepare it. in addition, here in this recipe, i used chickpea flour, whereas you can use fresh coconut as an alternative. you may refer my previous post as a reference to prepare the masala and use it as shown here in this post.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to cabbage alu vadi recipe. firstly, you need to choose a tender and fresh cabbage for this recipe. you should be able to easily peel the leaves without damaging it. if it is not fresh, it may turn brittle and crack while handling it. secondly, the recipe is ideally made with green cabbage, but you can choose other cabbage variation. also, try to but a whole cabbage and the half cabbage is of no use for this recipe. lastly, once the pinwheel paatra’s are steamed, you can either pan fry as a whole. the other option is to finely chop it and add the tadka mixture as shown in this recipe.
