Cabbage Curry

Curry, a sauceless vegetable dish is a regular item in any Indian menu.This dry curry is served with main dish while the one with gravies goes well with Indian bread.Curry being part of the daily meal one out of of the '5 A DAY' rule is met.

These curries are flavored either with coconut or onion and goes well with the South India mainstay of sambar or rasam. Just to break this routine and for those conscious of high cholesterol in coconut, this is a slightly varied version of 'cabbage curry'.


Cabbage - chopped
Red Chilly - 1
Peeled broken green gram - 1 Tbsp
Salt to taste

For Seasoning:
Cumin Seeds
Broken green gram
Curry leaves

Procedure :

1. Soak 1 Tbsp of peeled broken green gram in water for about 15 minutes
2. Take the desired amount of cabbage and chop into small pieces.
3. Add the seasoning,red chilly in a pan with little oil & let it splutter.
4. Now add the cabbage and the soaked greengram in the kadai with sufficient water for it to cook.
5. When the cabbage is half-cooked add salt.
6. Continue cooking till water evaporates & curry becomes dry.
Enjoy the curry...
