Cabbage fry/sabzi

I know I know what you are thinking now agree that its a pain to chop the cabbage but after reading the benefits of eating this green guy I started to like it.

Nutritional values:
This leafy vegetable ranks right up there with broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts with a reputation for fighting cancer.This food is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein,Calcium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6.
In one recent study, short-cooked and raw cabbage were the only types of cabbage to show cancer-preventive benefits-long-cooked cabbage failed to demonstrate measurable benefits.This powerful veggie is a must for dieters trying to lose weight.

Storing tips for cabbage:
Store whole heads of cabbage in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. If uncut, compact heads keep for a couple of weeks.


Ingredients:
Cabbage - 2 cups
Green chili - 2
Tomatoes - 1
Onion - 1/2 medium sized
Spring onion - 2tsp finely chopped
Coriander powder - 1/2tsp
Jeera seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 3tsp
Salt - as per taste
Red chili powder - 1/2tsp(according to taste)
Turmeric powder - pinch
Garlic - 3 to 4 pods(according to taste)

3.Take a pan/kadai and add oil once the pan is hot .
4.Add jeera seeds allow them to splutter and then add green chili ,onion after they are 30% cooked add spring onion wait for 2-3 sec and add turmeric powder.
5.Now its time to add cabbage , little salt and mix nicely and note that the heat should just be on medium .Wait for 5 mins and cover it with a lid.
6.Add chili powder and cook it for some more time on sloe flame/heat.
7.Add finely chopped tomato and garlic. I don't like the burnt smell of garlic so I don't add it in tadka/popu/tempering.If you prefer to add it in the tadka please do so.
8.Mix the sabzi and check for the salt add if it requires anything.Cook it for 5-8 mins without the lid and before switching off the heat add cilantro
