Total time
Serves: 3 servings
  • I cabbage head ( We need about 4 cups sliced thin cabbage or thinly shredded cabbage) , about 12 oz / 340 gm
  • 1.5 Tbsp oil ( Any good unflavored cooking oil)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • Serrano 1, finely sliced ( You can add as many you want per your taste OR use jalapenos or Indian chillies)
  • 2-4 Tbsp peanuts, roughly crushed ( I add only 2 Tbsp peanuts as are not too big of peanut lovers but you can add upto 4 Tbsp if u want to.)
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric ( haldi powder)
  • ½ tsp Coriander ( dhaniya powder)
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch sugar
  1. In a wide pan, heat 1.5 Tbsp oil.
  2. Once hot add mustard seeds, serrano, salt, turmeric, coriander, peanuts, garlic paste, ginger paste and pinch of sugar. Cook it on medium high heat until raw smell goes away 3-4 minutes. Now add cabbage and turn down the heat to low. Start mixing it so every piece of cabbage is coated with the delicious masala. MAKE SURE TO KEEP FLAME LOW AS CABBAGE TENDS TO WILT VERY VERY FAST.
  3. This should take somewhere 3-5 minutes to all mix together . Turn off the gas, taste and add any more spice if you wish at this stage. Give a quick mix again and that's it! Enjoy with fresh steamed rice ( my FAVORITE WAY TO EAT) or dal + rice or hot chapatis! Each combo is so so good!
