Cabbage Carrot Stir fry | Easy Side dishes for Rice

Print Friendly and PDF
cabbage carrot stir fry
I prefer to use Cabbage mostly in stir fries than the curries as TH is not fond of soft cooked cabbage.Cabbage Paratha is again a favorite with the crunchiness of fresh cabbage bites in it.Cabbage can be paired with many vegetables like carrots,peas,potatoes,sprouts and also with various dals like moong dal,chana dal,chickpeas. I absolutely love all the combinations and also try new combinations sometimes.
