Heat Frying pan / dosa tawa. Apply little oil. Pour 1 ladleful of batter and spread it in a circle. Sprinkle chopped onions. Cover with a lid cook for 5-8 minutes on medium flame. Turn other side also. Color of cabbage polo should be in golden color with golden brown onions. Repeat for remaining batter. Instead of cabbage you can add Drumstick leaves also.

Alternately try with grated cheese topping instead of onions. It’ll have different taste.
