North Indian style Sabji Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chile powder
  • 1/2 head cabbage, sliced

  • 1/2 cup water, or as needed

Method

  • Heat canola oil in a wok over medium heat. Cook and stir cumin and mustard seeds in the hot oil until they begin to dance, 1 to 2 minutes. Add coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper; cook about 1 minute.
  • Stir cabbage, potatoes, ginger-garlic paste, and salt into spice mixture; stir to coat. Pour enough water into wok to steam vegetables; cover and cook, stirring occasionally and adding more water as needed, until potatoes and cabbage are very tender, about 45 minutes.
