Matar Cabbage
Today I am in a mood to post lots of side dish recipes..I have already posted Indian Style Stir-Fry Mushrooms and this is another quick side dish recipe..I made this dish from top to bottom in just 15 min.Cabbage is one of the under estimated vegetable in the world,Many people hate cabbage and they never use it ..Cabbage has lots of health benefits in it..It is good for people who are in diet..Usually in south India,cabbage is cooked with lots of coconut in it.I hate that kind of dish..So I made this dish last week and when I tasted it it was so yummy and moreover it doesnot tasted like cabbage..My entire family digged into this dish and finished it within a few minutes..This goes perfectly with rice and dal or any gravies..This dish is modified from Manjula’s Kitchen..Give this dish a try and let me know what you think..
