Cabbage Kura

This is a simple cabbage curry that I learned from my mother. Very easy to do and its an instant hit in my family.

1. 1 small cabbage
2. 3-4 green chillis (I use more, use it according to your taste)
3. 1 inch ginger
4. 1-2 pinches of turmeric
For tadka/popu:
1. 1 tsp mustard seeds
2. 1 tsp cumin seeds
3. 1 tbsp urad dal
4. 2 tbsp channa dal
5. Hing
6. 2-3 tbsp peanut oil

Grind the raw ginger and chillis and make a paste. Do tadka with the above tadka ingredients after you get the oil heated. Then add the ginger/chilli paste. Add finely chopped or shredded cabbage as soon as the raw smell of ginger goes away. Add turmeric and salt and give all the ingredients a nice stir. Then cover the lid and cook until all the water is absorbed. (No need to pour any water, the cabbage will leave enough water to cook).

Notes: Instead of grinding the ginger and green chillis, I sometimes just grate the ginger and finely chop green chillis, easy when I am in a hurry.
