DIRECTIONS

  • Cut cabbage into 2-inch wedges (you'll have 6 to 8 of them), leaving the core intact so that the wedges stay together while they cook.
  • Heat a heavy skillet, over medium heat, and add 1/4 cup oil; heat this until it shimmers, then add cabbage.
  • Cook cabbage, turning once, so that it is browned on both sides, abut 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Reduce heat in skillet to medium low, add remaining tablespoon oil; add cloves, mustard seeds, curry leaves, bay leaf, shallot, and garlic, cooking and stirring 1 minute.
  • Add ginger, turmeric, 1 tablespoon jalapeno, tomato, and broth; season with salt (you can add more jalapeno to taste).
  • Increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil; return cabbage, cover, reduce heat to medium, and braise until tender, about 10 minutes (turn once halfway through braising).
  • Remove and discard cloves, curry leaves, and bay leaf.
