Indian style fried Cabbage

                       If I were to serve Indian food as a main course for Dinner, if possible with a Briyani, I had to make sure the side dishes were also Indian style esp the vegetables and this fried Cabbage is on tangent.  Ophelia


                   500 gm                Cabbage, shredded
                     1/4 cup              freshly grated Coconut
                    1/4 teasp            Kunyit powder
                    1/2 teasp            Chilli Powder
                    1/2 teasp            Mustard seeds
                       3 cloves           Garlic
                       1 stalk              Curry leaves
                       2                       Green Chillies
                       2                       Dry Chilli
                    1 1/2 Tabsp        Oil
                                                 Salt to taste

                Garnish : Corriander leaves/Yin Sai

  1. Heat oil [Oil should Not be too hot as mustard seeds burns easily] & fry the Mustard Seeds till they crackle/start jumping.
  2. Add in the Dried Chilli stir for a minute then add in the green chilli and garlic.
  3. Add in the curry leaves [squash it with yr palm JUST before adding the curry leaves as it will release more aroma], and the rest of the ingredients Except for the grated coconut & Yin Sai/Coriander leaves.
  4. Cover the pan & reduce fire to low, stirring occassionally till cabbage is cooked.
  5. Add the grated coconut & give  it a stir & OFF fire.  Check for taste.
