  1. 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.
  2. 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. Remove from heat; sprinkle vegetables with cilantro.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Cayenne pepper can be substituted for the red chile powder. If you don't have ginger-garlic paste, just use equal parts fresh ginger and garlic and mash it up.
  • To make jeera rice, heat about 1 tablespoon oil in a pan. When hot, add 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, fry for a minute. Add 1 cup of basmati rice. Stir to coat and let it fry for a minute or 2. Add 2 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. When the water boils, cut it down to low and cook, covered for 15 to 20 minutes.

Very good. We will make this again

This didn't look quite like I expected but it tasted good and was very "moreish". I found I needed to add a bit more water (perhaps up to a cup) and turn the heat down to low once it was simmeri...

Horrible! This is the worst Indian dish I have ever made!

Served this with home made chapatis. Was a tasty dinner, and not too spicy for my picky eaters.

This was really quite delicious. I added cauliflower and onion to this, but otherwise made it as stated, and served it with garlic basmati rice and tofu, and boy does this a hearty meal make! Th...

Great Indian flavor. This is a nice foundation you can substitute different vegetables.
