I LOOOOVE this in the summer. One of my friend's moms gave this recipe to me about three years ago after I had it at his house. It's really great--especially if you just add the ramen RIGHT before serving it!
This is an authentic Indian cabbage and pea curry. The recipe is designed to replicate the cabbage and peas dish at our local Indian restaurant. Hope you enjoy it! It's very spicy (i.e, it might make you cry), so you may want to tone it down a little.
This is a recipe from Rose Elliot's 'The Vegetarian Kitchen' in the Guardian Weekend supplement. If you can't find toovar dal (check the Indian section of your supermarket) you can substitute yellow split peas, which works just fine and it says you could also use red lentils instead. I used 1 smallish head of savoy cabbage, which once I had trimmed it and shredded it worked out just above the correct weight.
An Indianised way to cook cabbage, and our favorite preparation of the vegetable. If you have a grinder, take the trouble to roast and grind the coriander seeds - the freshly roasted flavor is worth the effort.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Yes, there are other braised cabbage recipes posted, but this not only looks different, it happens to be the lowest fat dish in a cookbook full of very high fat recipes. It also is a breeze to make and utterly delicious. I'm a sucker for caramelized anything. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add a bit more sugar. From a cookbook called The New Irish Table.
One day I made this stew for myself (God forbid the kids ever put cabbage in their mouths)They(the kids) accidently ate it mistaking it for my beef stew. They called me on my cell phone and told me that was the best stew I had ever made. I just let it be my little secret about cabbage.
