Cabbage Stir-fry in Sri Lankan style

As a Sri Lankan, I always cook our food most of the days during a week. We have several methods to cook same vegetable. Even the same recipe, we cook using fresh green chili. Also we cook using red chili powder. Two different flavors & appearance….

This is one method of cooking cabbage.

Ingredients (2 servings)

Half of a medium size cabbage
1 onion sliced
Few curry leaves
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp fenugreek seed
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp mustard seeds
Piece of cinnamon stick
2-3 tbspn of oil
Salt to taste
¼ cup thick coconut milk (optional)


Wash & slice cabbage. The more thin the more tasty.

Mix all spices with cabbage & keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan, once it is hot; add mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds start to pop up, add onion & curry leaves. Sauté until onions are tender.
Then add cabbage mix (which already added spices) to the pan. Mix well.
Cover & cook for few minutes.
Adjust salt.
If you like, add thick coconut milk in this stage (optional)
Serve & enjoy!!
