This is a great vegetarian curry. We had it as our main dish, but would make a good side in an Indian spread. I used the max amount of spices stated-- and glad I did. I might have even heaped some of the teaspoons. I would likely fry the cumin seeds separately next time, along with the chilis, and then add the powder spices. Also- small tip from my mom on cabbage curries: When cooking cabbage- stir once to coat cabbage and then leave it to wilt on it's own without stirring. This somehow keeps the sweet cabbage juices within the cabbage, making for a more flavorful dish at the end. I recommend this dish to anyone who likes Indian food, cabbage and paneer! I will be having leftovers for lunch. Thanks Engrossed!
