Punjabi Cabbage Recipe
September 10, 2012
A tasty way to incorporate the healthy herb root/spice turmeric into your diet.
2 garlic cloves
1 inch ginger root, peeled
2 jalapeño chillies
2 tbsp oil
2 tsp cumin seeds 2 tsp ground turmeric root
1 medium, 1lb green cabbage, finely shredded
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
¼ tsp chili powder
Put the shallot, garlic, ginger and chilies in a food processor and chop until finely chopped but not a paste, or rough chop together with a knife.
Heat the oil in a large heavy-based skillet over medium heat and cook the mixture until softened but not browned.
Add the cumin seeds and turmeric to the pan and stir for 1 minute.
Mix in the cabbage, stirring thoroughly until all the leaves are coated in the yellow paste.
Add the salt, pepper, ground cumin, coriander and chili powder.
Stir to coat the cabbage, and cook another 10 minutes with the pan partially covered, stirring occasionally until the cabbage is soft.
Add 1-2 tbsp of water if the cabbage becomes too dry and starts sticking to the pan.
Season to taste with salt.
