Just try this recipe once and add this wonderful veggie in your plate too, and believe you will not regret. Recipe is given below , give it a try.
CABBAGE POTATO FRY WITH A TWIST
Time: 30 mins
4 cup cabbage, shredded
2 big potatoes, peeled and cubed in 1/2 inches pieces
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 green chillies, slitted
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp asafetida ( heeng)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder ( little lesser )
1 spring curry leaves
1 tsp sambhar powder
2 tbsp green coriander leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a wok, add asafetida followed by mustard seeds. Let it crackle then add curry leaves and fry till crisp then add chopped onions and slitted chillies, saute for three mins then add potato cubes. Fry it at medium high flame till it become little golden.
Now add cabbage and fry it for 5 mins at high flame then lower flame to medium. Add turmeric powder and salt.
Be careful while adding salt as cabbage reduces on cooking. Cover it and let it cook till potatoes get nearly done. Now add chopped tomatoes and fry for 5 mins till tomatoes are cooked.
Now your cabbage potato fry is ready , garnish it with green coriander leaves and serve hot with rice dal combo or with roti, naan or paratha.
Don't brown onions in first fry as they will also cook along with potatoes, otherwise onions will burn and spoil whole taste. And also don't overcook potatoes too as it will be the last thing you want in your plate. Add turmeric powder little less as it looks good in its glossy look.
Hope you all will like this easy healthy side dish which easily incorporate with your daily diet. Please let me know your valuable comments and suggestions, they meant a lot to me.
