Cabbage coconut curry

Cabbage coconut curry recipe

High in the hills in India on our tiger trek we had all manner of yummy food - including a cabbage / coconut side. This tastes pretty close and makes a good change from steamed cabbage in the winter.

Recipe ingredients:

  • 1 cabbage, chopped
  • 100 g. coconut, grated
  • 1 green chili, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • Red chilies
  • 1-2 sprigs of curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Recipe method:

  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, red chili, curry leaves and fry for 2 minutes.
  • Grind the coconut, green chili and spring onions to a paste and add to the above. Fry for 2 more minutes.
  • Add the cabbage and cook for 10 minutes or until the cabbage is cooked.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander and serve with plain rice or chapathi.
