Easy and SimpleCabbage Curry

Cabbage Curry:
A simple yet very tasty curry  that I have prepared yesterday. Normally I don't like cabbage much. But I loved this curry because it is easy to prepare and no effort is needed.

Cabbage-1/2 chopped finely
Curry powder-2tsps

For Tadka:
Mustard Seeds:1/2tsp
Split urad dal:1/2tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Cumin Seeds-1/2tsp
Red chillies-4-5 broken into pieces(Adjust according to your taste)
Finely chopped ginger-1/2tsp

1)In a pan add 2tsps oil and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds,uraddal.
2)When urad dal turns brown and when mustard and cumin seeds start spluttering add hing and red chillies.
3)Now add ginger and fry until  it turns brown.
4)Add finely chopped cabbage,turmeric and salt.
5)Cook with covered lid on slow flame for10-15 minutes.
6)Just before switching off flame add curry powder.
7)Serve with hot rice and ghee.

1)The key to this curry is having fresh cabbage and chopping it finely.Normally the water content in cabbage is itself enough to cook it. If you find your cabbage dry you can sprinkle some water.
2)If you don't have curry powder in hand, just dry roast some chana dal,urad dal,coriander seeds,cumin seeds and hing and grind it to a fine powder. It gives very good aroma and taste to the curry.(Be careful to add coriander seeds at the last as they get burnt easily.
