Cabbage-Peas-Carrot Stir fry & Liebster Award

I like this combo.. It is very difficult to make children eat cabbage. If done this way, they would definitely not say NO. These three vegetables goes well with each other and gives a nice appetizing color to the usual stir fry.


Shredded Cabbage 1/2 cup
Peas 1/4 cup
Carrot - Medium sized - 1
Pearl Onions Few
Curry Leaves Few
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Urad Dhal 1/8 tsp


Grate Cabbage and Carrot. Chop pearl onions.


In a pan, heat oil. When hot, add mustard seeds. When they start popping up,add urad dhal, curry leaves and pearl onions. fry for a few seconds.

Now add grated cabbage. Sprinkle little water for the cabbage to cook. When it is almost done, add grated carrot, peas and salt. Fry till done.

Serves: 2
Serve with any spicy curry and rice.
