This one comes for our day today cooking, very fast to cook and a bit healthier version too. I got the idea of making this vegetable from one of my fellow blogger only, but now can't remember who. Earlier whenever i made cabbage, i mixed it with potato or made as it is, but in her recipe she mixed cabbage with beans , i liked it very much, so with this combination, i just made this veggie,( as i liked and as much as i remembered her recipe)
It came out quite good, and really fast, hope you all like it too...
1 1/2 cups cabbage chopped coarsely
1/2 cup beans
1 stalk curry leaves
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp. red chilli powder
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp lemon juice
2 pinches asafoetida
salt to taste
1/4 tsp. each cumin & mustard seeds
1 tbsp. oil
Wash and drain cabbage and beans. Keep aside.
Slit green chillies. Wash curry leaves.
Heat oil in a heavy pan. Add seeds, allow to splutter.
Add asafoetida, green chillies, curry leaves,turmeric; Stir.
Add cabbage and beans,
Add salt to taste (put a bit less salt as cabbage tends to reduce a lot)
Stir fry the vegetables for about 3-4 minutes,(do not cook fully, its taste better as crunchier)
Sprinkle red chillies over vegetable.
Stir to mix the masalas well.
Cook for about a minute.Add lemon juice.
Serve hot with wholewheat chappati or bread.
Tip: For cabbge(and also ladyfinger),if u are not sure add salt after it gets cooked for abt 3 4 minutes, as they reduce a lot sometime..
