red cabbage stir fry
When I am lazy to cook anything I usually prepare some quick Stir fry and Rasam for lunch and I would say it is my most comforting food.Usually it does not take more than half an hour to cook this meal with rice,stir-fry and rasam and hence it is apt for a quick meal.I like this particular combination of cabbage with peanuts,the addition of peanuts not only adds taste but also the crunch to the stir fry.You can serve this as a salad or a side dish for rotis and rice,it goes very well.

Red(Purple) Cabbage Stir fry with Peanuts:
(Serves 2-3)

Ingredients:
1 small Red or Purple cabbage,finely shredded
1/2 cup roasted Groundnuts,skinned and halved
4-5 Red chillies,broken
a sprig of Curry leaves
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Oil

Method: 
  • Heat oil in a kadai and crackle mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
  • Add broken red chillies and curry leaves and saute again for a minute until they turn slightly crisp.
  • Add shredded cabbage and fry on medium-high flame for 2-3 minutes and cover it and reduce the flame and cook for another 3-4 mins.Now the cabbage would start slightly change the color and is 3/4th cooked,it should be crunchy and not become soggy.
  • Slightly crush half the peanuts in a mortar and pestle or do it using a rolling pin.
  • Add salt and crushed peanuts and halved peanuts and stir fry on high flame for 2 minutes.
Serve it hot immediately with Roti/Rice.You can have this as a salad as well,it tastes nice too.

Notes:
  1. Always add peanuts at the end otherwise they will loose their crunch and it does not taste that good.
  2. In case you are preparing this stir fry ahead of time do not add peanuts in it,add the peanuts jsut before serving and give a quick stir on high flame.
  3. You can replace red chillies with green chillies in the recipe.
  4. Regular cabbage can be used instead of red cabbage and follow the same recipe.
  5. Grated carrots can also be added along with carrots in the recipe.
