Indian Cabbage and Peas (serves 4)
Encountered this at an all-you-can-eat Indian Buffet the other day. Very nice, so have been busy with my spices this morning. Apartment smelling very aromatic! Not having a pestle and mortar any more, I made do with a rolling pin to crush the coriander seeds.
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, seasoned with salt
1 x bunch of scallions/spring onions – finely chopped
1 teasp. cumin
1 teasp. curry powder
1/2 teasp. coriander seeds – crushed
1/2 teasp. garam masala
1/4 teasp. cardamom
1/2 cabbage – shredded
1 cup of peas
1 cup veg. broth/stock
Heat oil in a skillet/frying pan and when sizzling add scallions/spring onions and all spices and cook for a couple of minutes.
Turn heat down a little and add cabbage, peas and broth/stock.
Turn cabbage and peas to coat with oil and spices.
Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes, stirring a few times.
