Stir Fry Cabbage is the best way to feed this nutritious vegetable to all those fussy kids and husband who make faces seeing cabbage on the dinning table. This recipe was a big success in my house. Though I didn’t follow the authentic ingredients commonly used in stir fry dishes, I retained the healthy elements and still this stir fry cabbage came out really tasty!
Colourful vegetables are considered very good for health. So, here I have used both green and purple cabbage. I used tomato to get red colour which also gave tangy taste. Purple cabbage is more pungent in taste compared to green cabbage. Also added onions for white colour. So, overall the taste of four vegetables along with spices gave this dish a very nice flavour.
I avoided using soy sauce here as it’s high in sodium. Usually, I never use garam masala and onions in cabbage. But for this stir fry, I added a pinch of garam masala in the end and the overall result with the pungent cabbages, sweet onions, acidity of tomatoes and spicy green-chilies along with Indian spices created fantastic Stir Fry Cabbage dish!!
Try this recipe, and trust me that this Indian style Stir Fry Cabbage will bring smile at the dinning table🙂.

Chopped cabbage 250 gms
Medium size onion 2
Tomato 1 or 1 tsp lemon juice
Green chilies 2-3
Oil 3 tbsp
Rai (tiny mustard seeds) 1/4 tsp
Jeera (cumin seeds) 1/4 tsp
Hing (Asafoetida) 1/8 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Salt as per your taste
Coriander powder 1+1/2 tsp
Red chilly powder 1/4 tsp
Garam masala 1/8 tsp
Chop cabbages length-wise. Wash and keep them in the strainer till the water drains out.
Similarly, chop onions and green chilies too.
In a wok or a pan heat 1 tbsp oil and stir fry onions till they are brown. Keep onions in a separate bowl.
Once again heat 2 tbsp oil and crackle rai, hing and jeera. Keep the heat on medium flame and immediately add chopped cabbages and green chilies. Add salt and turmeric powder, mix it well and keep stirring.
Remember, cabbage should not turn completely soft. In stir fry dishes, vegetables remain crisp – that’s why they are cooked on slightly high flame. When you feel that cabbage is about to get cooked in the next 5 minutes, add coriander powder and chilly powder. Mix it well and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes. Add chopped tomato pieces, garam masala and onions. Stir for a minute and your Stir Fry Cabbage is ready to go with hot parathe or naan!!
