Cabbage & Peas curry

This is another side dish we make in most of our family. It takes less time and water to cook this vegetable. Here is the recipe.


  1. Cabbage - 2 cups (nicely chopped)
  2. Frozen Peas - 3/4 cup
  3. salt to taste
  4. coconut - 1 tbsp
  5. green chillies - 1 or 2
  6. oil - 2 tsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  8. Urad dhall - 1/4 tsp
  9. Curry leaves - few
First cook cabbage and frozen peas with required amount of water. These two vegetables requires very little amount of water. Drain it and keep it aside. Now take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall, green chillies and curry leaves and fry it to golden brown. Now add the cooked cabbage and peas to it and saute for a minute. Now add salt and coconut and mix thoroughly. While mixing cabbage, we have to be very careful because cabbage will become mashy. Also we have to drain it fully before seasoning because usually when we add salt it will release some water. This is again a side dish for rice.

This is a typical Bengali recipe (minus ingredient points 4,7,8,9). We use onion seeds (kalonji/kalajeera). Point 4 can be optional.

I agree with Shanker. No doubt, the recipes are delicious. By the way, visit Shanker's blog. I have learnt many things about blogging from him.
