Cabbage Pakoda and some scenic pictures from Austria

Last week was pretty exciting  for us as we went on a 5 day trip to Austria and Venice.
Austria was gorgeous and Venice was too beautiful. With nothing much to say, I want to share a few pictures from the trip  for you all to see what we saw and a recipe for quick snack.




Snow Clad Alps...


Bright and sunny Venice..










Now coming to recipe...

Cabbage Pakoda:

2 cups shredded cabbage.
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
1 cup Besan flour

Austria looks picture perfect. Its not next on my list(Turkey is) but after that its Swiss and Austria. Love the scenic shots. I was in Venice last year and it rained. Venice is one place that I didn't love..liked,yes but didn't love.
The cabbage pakoda looks really crispy. My MIL made some for me when I was in Chennai. Before that, I wasn't aware that there was a variation such as this. BTW, i made the 'original'(onion and besan) pakoda last week.
Hey, in case you are wondering whatever happened to that post that I asked about, I will post it soon. Whenever I go to the supermarket looking for cherries, it isn't in the shelves yet..atleast not in the New England area. So the minute I see it, i am giving it a try. Ciao

Hi Cl, Ya, I share the same opinion about venice..But I liked the way it was bright and sunny on the day we went.But if you are looking for a people friendly place..Venice is absolutly not the place.We had some hard time, getting aound the city, that too with the kid.

Picture perfect photos. I have not visited Austria but enjoyed the natural scenery living in the Northwest. You should know better having lived in Seattle too. Would love to visit Europe someday.
Pakodas looks great.

Asha said...

Sumi, we surely plan to visit Europe again. We lived in UK for 5 yrs, enjoyed about 5 other countries in Europe every year for vacation but not all countries, ran out of time. Great memories though.
My daughter was 3 when we left for US, doesn't remember much, son is born here, so kids haven't visited Europe. Would be very nice for them to visit there now that they are lot older! :))
