Indian Spicy Cabbage and Peas

I saw this recipe on Tanvi's blog Sinfully Spicy recently and knew I would love it, being married to an Indian I am always looking for more great Indian recipes and love quick ones 
(he he most curries are not :-))

This is a wonderful way to cook cabbage and its quick, perfect. 


  • 1/2 a cabbage thinly chopped
  • a little canola oil
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
  • a few crushed coriander seeds
  • a few fenugreek seeds
  • pinch of red chili powder
  • 1/2 a teaspoon garam masala powder
  • salt to taste 
  • one tablespoon shredded coconut

  1. heat oil so hot add fenugreek seeds onions and brown a little for 3 minutes then add coriander seeds turmeric and cabbage and saute for 5 minutes to soften
  2. add peas and the garam masala, coconut salt and chili powder cover with a lid to steam for another 5 minutes and its done
This is a great spicy vegetable dish and definitely something I will make again.

Also be sure to tune in tonight - I am interviewing Nour @nourRD and Stephanie @bakingbarrister, hubby and me on different holiday traditions and foods, we will cover Ramadan, Eid, Hanukkah, Diwali and Christmas  and follow it with a tweet up chat on the topic #foodandtravel with my friend Terra @FoodSafetyLady

  1. Hi Rebecca, this sounds....interesting. I will definitely have to try it. Is that a tiffin that you have it in? I like the quick curries too :D I do have to watch the heat for my husband, so that's another curry challenge!

    Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! Cheers!

  21. I've never had Indian cabbage, but I love Indian flavors and I enjoy cabbage so I can imagine this would be a really fun dish to try.

  22. This looks delicious and seems like something that would be delicious in the colder weather most of us are experiencing.

  24. Totally new to me - I have Indian recipes with peas but nothing like the spicy cabbage. That will warm me up for winter!
