Cabbage Stir Fry

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin Kvitamin C and fiber. Cabbage is prepared and consumed in many ways. The simplest options include eating the vegetable raw or steaming it. Cabbage has been used as a medicinal herb. Both mashed cabbage and cabbage juice have been used to remove boils and treat warts, pneumonia, appendicitis and ulcers. Excessive consumption of cabbage may cause bloating (increased intestinal gas).

Let's see how to make a simple and tasty stir fry of cabbage.


What you need:

Cabbage shredded-4 cups
Cut green chilly-3
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Hing (inguva or asafoetida)-a pinch
Fresh coconut (grated)-2 tablespoons
Mustard seeds-1/4 teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1/4 teaspoon
Gram dal-1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves-few
Salt to taste
Oil-2 tablespoons

  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick pan or kadai and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, gram dal and hing. Once they splutter, add curry leaves, green chilly and turmeric powder.
  2. Now add the shredded cabbage and stir it for two minutes. Add salt and cover it with a lid.
  3. Cook it for 4-5 minutes stirring in between on a medium flame. Remove the lid and keep stirring for two minutes on a low flame. 
  4. Add grated coconut and fry it for two more minutes.
  5. Turn off the stove and transfer it into a serving bowl. Serve it with steamed rice and dal.
Note: Hing and fresh coconut powder give a nice flavor and taste to this dish. So I have avoided adding ginger garlic paste to it.
