My friend Sirisha, from South India, introduced me to this. It is great! I like it hot and cold. There are several versions on 'zaar, but this one has stronger spices than most. It is somewhat hot, but mostly just very flavorful! I prefer it without the onion. The amounts are approximate, as she never measure. I do, though. :)

  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and red chiles. They will start to crackle, like popcorn.
  2. After they have crackled for a couple minutes, add green chile and optional onion. Fry 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add shredded cabbage. Cover and cook about 3 minutes, stirring twice.
  4. Add peas, turmeric, and salt. Cook 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add optional curry leaves at the end.
