Patta Gobhi (Cabbage) Sabzi

The last couple of days, we have pretty much been eating out, thanks to the many Christmas lunches and dinners. At the end of it, both K and I were craving for something simple that would be easy on the system. This is an easy dish, made in minutes and you can pretty much experiment with any masala and vegetables. I generally add peas, potatoes and bell peppers, but this time I just used peas and cabbage.

1 small cabbage, chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
1/2 onion, sliced thin
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves
Salt to taste
Oil

Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and when they crackle, add the curry leaves and sliced onion. when onion begins to brown, add the green chillies and cabbage. mix well, cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. Now add all the masalas and salt. Mix well, cover the pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the peas and cook till the water had evaporated and cabbage has cooked. Serve hot with Roti/Paratha and enjoy !!
