Indian Style Fried Cabbage

This stir fry cabbage that looks yellowish is commonly seen at many Indian food stalls or Nasi Kandar outlets.  Especially aromatic with mustard seeds.  The yellow colour comes from the tumeric powder.  An easy stir fry vegetable that is very suitable with curries.
I cooked this to serve with Chicken Vindaloo [see recipe here], papadum and plain white rice.  Awesome and yummy meal for the family.

Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 91
600 gm cabbage - cleaned and cut thin strips
1 carrot - shredded
5 pips garlic - sliced
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp each of tumeric powder and chicken stock granules
1 tsp salt
2-3 tbsp water
  1. Heat oil in wok, saute mustard seeds and garlic until aromatic.
  2. Add in the cabbage and carrot. Stir fry to mix well.
  3. Add in tumeric powder, salt and chicken stock granules.
  4. Stir fry to combine, then add in water. Fry till cabbage is cooked.
  5. Dish up to serve.

Hi Kimmy!
What an interesting and colorful cabbage dish. It sure looks tasty. I bet the mustard adds quite tang.

Thank you so much for sharing...

Hi Kimmy! This is quite a common dish at the Indian restaurant. I love it and even my young nephew loves it too!

Kimmy said...

Hi Louise, yes without the mustard seeds and tumeric powder, the taste could be very different.

Hi Baby Sumo, there are only 2 most like vegetables which I will order at the Indian or Mamak stalls. They are the fried cabbage and spinach. Both fried the same way with mustard seeds and curry leaves.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, then this must be very good. Maybe he likes the colour of this vegetable.

Hi Kimmy,
This is one of my favourite veggie to order from Indian restaurants. Very good eaten with rice and curries. I sometimes make it at home too when I cook an Indian meal, with a pinch of asafoetida added in. Thanks for sharing with CYB!
