Stir Fried Cabbage with Red Chilies

This is my favorite among the variety of cabbage recipes. My mommy used to make this when we were kids and I always cherish delicacies made by her. This is very quick and tasty recipe. While cooking cabbage always keep in mind don't overcook, as it turns mushy and cabbage flavor vanish from it.

Time : 10 min
Serve: 2
Cuisine: Maharashtrian


2 Cup Cabbage(shredded)

1/2 Cup peas(frozen/fresh)
1 large red tomato(Finely chopped)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp Olive oil

salt to taste


1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard sees
5-6 Curry leaves
4-5 Red chilies
2 tbsp Urad dal


1. Heat oil in non stick pan, add urad dal. Saute till dal turn golden brown. Now add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and red chilies. Saute for a minute.

2.  Add chopped tomatoes salt and turmeric powder. Saute till tomato loose its water. Now add peas and cabbage. Mix well. Cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Do not overcook. 

3. Serve hot with any variety of rice, chapati, roti or parathas and lemon widges.
