I was not a big fan of cabbage while growing up. But recently I have started liking it more and more. May it be simple cabbage upkari or cabbage vada, it tastes delicious. So when I buy cabbage, I make sure to make more than one type of dish with it, so that we don’t get bored of it.
Aruna sent me this recipe. She said she had learnt it from a Gujrathi friend. I tried it and it tastes very good. It is sweet from sugar, spicy from green chilies and sour from lime juice. It hadly takes 10mins to make.
2 cups of cabbage cut into long pieces
3 green chilies
A pinch of asafoetida
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
A pinch turmeric
1/4 tea spn garam masala
1/2 tea spn sugar
1 tbl spn lime juice
2-3 strands coriander leaves
Heat oil, add mustard seeds and When it starts popping, add the chilis and asafoetida. Add the cabbage, mix well. Add turmeric and mix well. Allow the cabbage to reduce a bit. After 5 min add the garam masala, salt and sugar.
The cabbage should not over cook. Add the lemon juice and coriander leaves.
Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 10mins

oh yeah…this is a perfect Gujju recipe..adding carrots to this and leaving out the garam masala turns it into a nice side dish!
