  • 1 cups medium sized cabbage shredded or sliced, about 2 ½
  • 1 cup green peas thawed if frozen
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • piece A small of ginger grated
  • 1-2 green chilies chopped small
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder dhaniya powder
  • 1 tbsp oil I used Olive oil in this recipe
  • leaves A handful of coriander cilantro
  • 3-5 leaves curry optional
  • A pinch of black pepper optional


  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and throw in mustard seeds and cumin seeds in it. Add in curry leaves if using and fry for 10-12 seconds.
  2. Add in grated ginger and green chilies. Fry for half a minute at low. Mix in all the spices and mix.
  3. Then add in shredded cabbage and green peas, mix in well, cover with a lid and cook for 10-12 minutes. Stir in between.
  4. The peas and cabbage must have started wilted by now. Cook till its all shrunk and if there is some water released by cabbage, cook for a few minutes at low without any lid to dry it up if needed. Take care not to burn the cabbage and the pan.
  5. If it gets too dry, sprinkle some water on top and cook covered for a minute.
  6. Once all done, sprinkle some black pepper and cilantro, fold in well and serve with roti or rice.

Recipe Notes

Don’t keep the dish covered for too long. Once reheated, it releases water making it soggy and not so delightful to have.

Make sure to cook till the green peas are well cooked since that will add to the sweet taste of the dish.
