This is a recipe for all the people who detest cabbage. I am actually fed up of eating cabbage stir fry from the past few days. It was me who got tempted by the huge cabbage that was offered for 10/-.
Many people do not like the pungent smell of this vegetable, but when you combine with the right ingredients, it tastes awesome.
Chopped Cabbage - 4 cups
Green chillies - 4 nos.
Split Bengal Gram - 1/4 cup (add more if you like)
Cummin - 1/4 spoon
Split Black gram - 1/4 spoon
Tamarind - lemon sized
Oil - 2 spoons
Salt - to taste
Method for preparation :
Heat oil in a Wok. Add the cummin seeds, Bengal and Gram dal to the hot oil. Fry until the bengal gram changes to light golden color. Add whole green chillies and cover the lid (to avoid flying chillies ;) ). Once the spluttering sound reduces, open the lid and add the chopped cabbage. Fry the cabbage and the rest of the ingredients until the raw smell of cabbage disappears. Now add the tamarind to this mixture and cover the lid. Cook until the tamarind softens due to the heat. In this process, the cabbage also gets cooked well. Turn off the heat and let his mixture cool down. Gring to coarse paste along with some salt and very very little water.
This goes well with Roti/ Plain rice with some Ghee.
