Cabbage Palya (Indian Cabbage Side)

by Divi

This side dish was a staple in my home. I enjoy its simplicity and it pairs well with many other Indian dishes that have strong flavors. I enjoy eating this with Thakali Gojju (Tomato Curry) and Fish Fry. I hope you enjoy this simple and healthy Indian side dish as much as I do.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tsp Urad Dal (black gram dal spilt without skin)
  • 6 whole Dried Red Chili Peppers (break them in half for more spice)
  • 2 sticks Curry Leaves, wash and remove leaves from stick
  • 20 oz Shredded Cabbage (I use 2 10oz bags of pre-shredded cabbage)
  • 1/2 cup Grated Coconut (frozen version can be found in Indian grocery stores)
  • Salt to taste
  • Garnish with Cilantro

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a sauté pan on medium heat
  2. When oil has warmed up, add mustard seeds, urad dal, and dried red chilies
  3. When the mustard sizzles, add the curry leaves to the oil
  4. Sauté the curry leaves for about a minute
  5. Add cabbage and salt. I like to start with 1/2 tsp of salt to start and adjust it later
  6. Gently toss so that the seasoning and oil evenly coat the cabbage
  7. Cook cabbage for approximately 5 minutes, till it softens. Be careful not to let it soften too much as it is better to retain a little bit of the crunch
  8. Add shredded coconut and cook for a few minutes
  9. Turn off heat and garnish with cilantro 

Notes

Your local Indian store should sell curry leaves. Whole Dried Red Chili Peppers and Urad dal can be bought on Amazon (links to products are https://amzn.to/2KrdOzw & https://amzn.to/2twitd8)
