Cabbage Curry

My one and only one problem after marriage was thinking of menu. Planning a menu for three times a day is not an easy job. Sometimes I find planning a menu is more difficult than cooking. If you know what to cook or you had planned what to cook then cooking part will take less time and it is more fun too. But without any plan you are entering the kitchen, then staring at the fridge and pantry takes lot of time. At times, I will irritate my hubby dear asking him what he likes to eat or else will ask my mom what she has made for lunch/dinner? Till date at times planning a menu is a bit tough job to me. No one can eat the same dal, chawal everyday nor the same side dish with roti. As it is said ‘variety is spice of life’, this quote aptly applies for cooking. To make a variety recipe and spice up every meal is something that leads me to choose and cook different side dishes for roti or rice.

Cabbage Curry

Cabbage is very common in my pantry. With very little change in the normal cabbage recipe can result in a new recipe. Just the addition of peas and carrots to cabbage can give new and yum curry to my family. Peas and carrots add a colorful look to the recipe too…

Cabbage Curry

INGREDIENTS:


  • 3 cups shredded Cabbage
  • 1 Onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup green Peas
  • 1 Carrot, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 1 Green chilli, slit length-wise and deseeded
  • 1 tbsp Red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tbsp Turmeric powder
  • Salt
  • Oil

TEMPERING/TADKA:

  • 1 tbsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp Jeera/cumin seeds
  • 1 dry Red chilli
  • 10-12 fresh Curry leaves

Cabbage Curry

PREPERATION:

  • Wash and pressure cook cabbage, peas and carrots till soft *. Drain the excess water and set aside.
  • In a heavy bottom cooking vessel add oil and to this add one by one of the ingredients listed under 'tempering'.
  • When curry leaves change color, add sliced onions and fry till they are translucent. Now add green chilli, red chilli powder and turmeric powder.
  • Fry for 1-2 minutes and add the pressure cooked cabbage, peas and carrot pieces. Mix well and cook for another 3-6 minutes on a low flame covering with a lid.
  • Cabbage curry is ready to be served with piping hot roti's.
  • Last but not least add your 'love' to make the dish 'YUMMY'.

*NOTE: If you don't want to use pressure cooker then simply add tempering to oil. When the tempering gets heated up add onion and green chilli. When onions turn translucent add the chopped/shredded cabbage, green peas and carrots. Mix well and add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Cook covered on a low flame till cabbage is soft and tender. Serve hot with roti.

Cabbage is a favorite of mine. This dish looks healthy and delicious!

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Cabbage is now in season here in Canada and they are looking beautiful. What a great idea to make this healthy and delicious curry out of them. Is that Napa cabbage that you have used? We have all kinds here, I guess they like the cold climate.
Such lovely gifts! I am especially tickled by the wine "outfits". Since I was born in Japan (I'm not Japanese) I used to have similar pajamas.

Avisha said...

Simple and looks delicious.

Palidor said...

I never thought of currying cabbage. It looks delicious!

Katy ~ said...

I like menu planning, but it's mostly for dinners and weekend breakfasts. The lunches are mostly leftovers or hit-or-miss as I work from home and only have a very limited amount of time before I must return to work (I still have to punch a clock for my job.)

Never knew I could use cabbage and curry together. Your gorgeous photographs make this look so enticing and tempting.

Katy ~ said...

Please forgive my forgetfulness! Congratulations on your beautiful gifts!
