Cabbage Dry Curry


Cabbage is another vegetable which contains Vitamin C, Fibre and Beta-Carotene. With these contents and additional chemicals, Cabbage is said to have the power of DNA-repair in cells, blocking the growth of cancerous cells. Varieties of sabzi or curries can be prepared using Cabbage. I have already posted two varieties of Cabbage Sabzis in my blogs. I adopted this recipe from Sharmi’s Passion; she used some whole masalas in preparing this curry, which gives mild masala taste. I have used Fennel seeds which gives good aroma and taste to the curry. With this I have also added Garlic Pods. If you do not like the garlic pods you can use the paste instead. Cook this SALUTARY Dish Cabbage Dry Curry and serve with Chapati or Rice.
