Sauteed Cabbage - Indian style

Recently I started using cabbage in different ways. Today i am going to present with a simple recipe which is very easy to cook and takes very minimum time. Yet it tastes great and goes very well with roti or rice. I make this curry along with rotis for quick lunch many times.


Shredded Cabbage 3 cups
One medium sized Onion, sliced into thin pieces
Green chillies 4, cut into small pieces
Few Curry leaves
Chopped garlic 1 tbsp
Shajeera (Caraway Seeds) powder, 1 tsp
Dhania powder, 1 tsp
Red chilli powder, 2 tsp
Jeera and Mustard seeds together 1 tsp for seasoning
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste


Take a wide frying pan heat oil. Add garlic, jeera, mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow them to splutter for about 10 seconds. Now add onions, green chilli pieces and then fry for a minute. Finally add the shredded cabbage and mix well with onions. Cover the lid and fry for 10 min on low flame. Please keep in mind that the cabbage should be half cooked for this curry to turn delicious. Now remove the lid, mix well again and then cook for another 5 minutes without lid. Now add salt, red chilli, dhania and shajeera powders. Mix well and fry for another 5 minutes so that the cabbage absorbs the flavor of the shajeera well. The sauteed cabbage is ready and it goes well with rotis and even rice. Very simple right!!! I am sure you all will like it.
