GOOD FOOD to WARM SOUL!

Hi! Hope everybody is excited about up coming festive season and holidays!
Today I have a simple yet flavorful dish for all of you..
Cook and enjoy to with your dear ones..
 

Humble ingredients:
One medium size fresh cabbage
One medium to big onion
One big tomato
Green chillies to your taste
Half an inch ginger
Turmeric power 1/2tsp
Indian garam masala powder 1/2tsp
(I prefer it homemade my style: roast and grind equal amounts of green cardamom, clove and cinnamon. You can store it in a small air tight bottle.)
Roasted cumin powder 1/2tsp
Salt to taste
If you like extra heat, you can add pepper or red chilli powder as per your taste
Sugar 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Oil 2tbs
A frying pan to cook

 Cut the cabbage radially, as seen in the above pic with a little of its inner stem so that the architecture is not lost. Each wedge should be about an inch thick in the middle.
Cut onion and tomato also into strips.
Jul lien or make thin strips of ginger or may be grate it
Cut the chilli into thin long strips.

Method:
 Heat the pan and let the oil heat up.
Add Cumin seeds and chill in the oil
As the cumin fries, add in the onions and fry till translucent
Now add the ginger and fry for couple of more minutes.
Lower the flame medium to low heat and carefully place the cabbage wedges neatly over the onions. Sprinkle salt, turmeric and cumin powder over it and let it cook.
After about 4 to 5 min using a spatula or flat spoon turn over the cabbages. Add tomatoes and cook till all the cabbage is cooked.
Add roasted cumin powder, garam masala and sugar.
Gently stir and remove from heat.

Serve hot with your choice of bread.
I learnt this recipe from a very dear and senior friend Sushmita. She is an excellent cook, does lovely needle work and a wonderful friend.
To friendship and festivities..
