Cabbage Bharta

Got bored of regular cabbage curry, hence tried this. Too tasty a dish, goes best with plain rice. However, this can be used as a dip or spread it onto your bread, or else roll it with tawa roti for a quick lunch. 


  • Cabbage – 1 cup
  • Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
  • Garlic – 1 tsp, chopped
  • Tomato – 1, chopped
  • Green chilli – as per taste
  • Salt
  • Turmeric
  • Coriander powder
  • Sugar – a pinch
  • Mustard oil

Steam the cabbage in microwave. Then grind it with some green chillies and keep aside.


In a pan, heat mustard oil. Then add slitted green chilli with a pinch of kalojire / kalonji seeds. Next goes the garlic slices.


Add ginger paste and after 30 seconds, add chopped tomatoes. Stir till the tomatoes are cooked. Then add the salt, turmeric and coriander powder.


Then add the ground cabbage with a pinch of salt and mix well with the masalas.


Fry till the water evaporates and oil starts coming out of the sides. Sprinkle some sugar and adjust seasoning.


Serve with rice.
