Cabbage with Peas

Pin It Now! Cabbage - I do not know many who like this vegetable. I too disliked it until I saw this recipe. Yesterday I  made a shortcut version of this recipe and its changed my opinion about cabbage for ever.

 Before I rave further, here's the recipe : -

Cabbage with Peas ( Inspired from this recipe at eCurry )

For tempering :-
4 cardamom pods (opened to expose the seeds)
1 bay leaf
2 cloves
1/2 C chopped tomatoes
1 tsp grated ginger or ginger paste
2 dry red chillies broken in big pieces
2 green chillies  broken in large pieces
1 tsp turmeric powder

2C finely shredded cabbage
1/4 C peas (frozen or fresh)
 salt to taste
 oil as required
 1 tbsp garam masala
 1 tbsp ghee

  • On medium heat saute the cardamom,cloves,bay leaf until the oil is fragrant. Add the turmeric,dry red ,green chillies and ginger paste fry till slightly brown. 
  •  Then add the tomatoes and saute till oil separates and mixture is lumpy.
  •  Then add the shredded cabbage. Mix well. Simmer,cover and cook till the cabbage is soft but slightly crunchy.
  •  Can take around 10 min.The cabbage will reduce in quantity.
  •  Then add salt and mix well.Add the peas and mix again.
  • Cook uncovered for another 3-4min till the water evaporates and the mixture is dry.
  • Finally add the garam masala and the ghee. Taste and add more salt if required.
  • Serve with some roti for a healthy meal.

The aroma of the whole and ground spices take it to a whole new level.We have loved this new twist to this neglected veggie. It has finally found its place on our meal menu.
