Cabbage Upkari (Cabbage Stir Fry)

Cabbage Upkari is a very simple konkani dish. I can say it is a basic dish and very easy to prepare. Cabbage is an excellent source of Vitamin C and also a low calorie vegetable and hence very helpful for those who are dieting. 
Enjoy this healthy, low calorie dish!



Ingredients:
  • Cabbage, big sized- 1/2 of a whole 
  • Onion, small sized- 1
  • Oil- 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilli- 2-3
  • Split black gram/Urad dal- 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves- Few
  • Salt- To taste
  • Grated coconut, fresh/frozen- 1-2 Tbsp (Optional)
Procedure:

Wash and chop the cabbage and Onion.


Heat oil. Add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add chopped onions. Fry for a minute and then add urad dal, slit green chilli and curry leaves. Fry until the onion turns translucent and urad dal turns light brown. 



Now add chopped cabbage, salt and mix well.



Close it with a lid and let it cook on a medium flame. Add water, if required (cabbage will give out some moisture after adding salt). Once the cabbage looks cooked, add grated coconut and then turn off the heat (don't over cook the cabbage). Cabbage Upkari is ready!



Serve it hot as a side dish to rice, roti. Above measurement serves two people.
