Kobi jo Shaak / Spicy Cabbage

The earthy flavour and the wonderful rustic aroma of mustard seeds popped in hot oil is unforgettable, quite unlike mustard powder or paste taste. Here is a typical Gujarati recipe for cabbage, great with chapatis or puris

.

1 cabbage; finely shredded
3 large tomatoes; blanced, peeled and liquidised
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 inch ginger - grated
2 chillis - minced
1 table spn vegetable oil
1 tspn mustard seeds
1/2 tspn tumeric
2 teaspoons coriander/cumin mix
salt to taste


Method
1. Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, as soon as they start to splutter, add the tomatoes, garlic, ginger and the minced chillis, stir and fry for a few minutes.
2. Add the cumin, coriander and tumeric, fry for a few minutes.
3. Add the shredded cabbage, stir well, so that it is coated with the mixture.
4. Add salt and cook for 15 minutes or until the cabbage is cooked.

Lovely shaak, Saju! The picture looks WOW! Cabbage and mustrad go so well together or rather without mustard, cabbage is incomplete :). My recipe is almost similar, except garlic.
