Cabbage Stir-Fry

Cabbage is one such veggie that is green, leafy and very rich in fiber content. It is a very versatile vegetable. It can be eaten raw or cooked. Since it is rich in fiber content it is a very good veggie that cleanses the intestinal system of the body. I usually make stir-fry, Dal and Kootu with cabbage and it is the most liked veggie in my home. This stir-fry is very easy to make and can be eaten with Rice, Roti or can be munched upon just like that.


Small cabbage - 1
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Chana Dal - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - About 1/8 th of a tsp
Green chillies - 4-5
Cilantro - A few sprigs
Salt - To taste


  • Shred the cabbage into small pieces. Wash and drain and set it aside.

  • In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, chana dal and urad dal.

  • Once the mustard seeds splutter and the dal turns golden brown, add the green chillies.

  • Now add the drained cabbage, salt and turmeric powder. Mix all the seasoning well with the cabbage.Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes on medium heat.

  • Keep stirring once in between. Once the cabbage has turned translucent it is cooked. Let the cabbage be a little crunchy. It tastes better that way.

  • Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.

  • Enjoy the stir-fry the best with Rasam rice!!

  • You can also use red chillies instead of green chillies..It will be a contrast to the green color of the cabbage.
  • You can add shredded coconut about 2-3 minutes before turning off the flame. It is a variation from the normal cabbage curry.
  • Using turmeric powder is optional. You may choose to skip its use.
