  • 1000g (about 1 medium size) raw green cabbage (finely diced)

  • 1 medium size onion

  • 1 grated medium size carrot

  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas

  • 2/3 tsp cumin powder

  • 2/3 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp ginger paste

  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 green Thai Chili finely diced (optional per tolerance)

  • Salt per taste

  • 1/4 cup cilantro to add at the end (optional)

  • 3-4 sprays of Avocado oil spray (optional)


  • Start by finely dicing the onion. Spray non-stick frying pan with 3-4 sprays. Add onion to a non stick frying pan and sauté till golden brown (about 5-6 minutes) on low/medium heat.
  • While onions are browning, finely dice cabbage, grate carrot and keep aside. Make sure to stir onions occasionally to allow them to brown evenly.
  • Once onions have browned, add minced ginger, garlic and finely diced green chili. Sautee for about 40 seconds to a minute.
  • Add turmeric powder, cumin powder, salt per your taste and sauté for another 40 seconds to a minute.
  • Add diced cabbage and gently stir to combine the spices evenly. Close the lid and continue to cook cabbage on low/medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, add grated carrot, green peas, mix to combine. Close the lid and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes. Continue to stir in between to allow everything to cook evenly.
  • Remove the lid and cook for another 3-4 minutes on open flames. Give it a final taste test and adjust any salt. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top. Serve as a side dish with any of your dishes. Watch my YouTube video linked below to see how I made this.
