Cabbage bonda is a yummy tea time snack recipe. It is so easy and can be made in short time. So it is perfect snack to prepare for the sudden guest visits.
The base ingredient to make this snack is gram flour (Besan/kadalai maavu).
We can make variety of bondas with the besan/gram flour as base.
This cabbage bonda reminds me my school days. There is tea stall in the outside of my school. While crossing that shop in the evening time this bonda aroma from that shop itself will make us salivate, that too in that hungry time no words to explain that feel.   
While seeing the ingredient list it may look difficult, but this bonda is so easy to make and tasty.
