Kobi Bhaji - Stir Fry Cabbage

Kobi Bhaji
An easy and quick, less spicy stir fry cabbage recipe with chana dal or split chickpeas.

Green Cabbage/Kobi/Patagobhi - 250 gms
Chana Dal/Split Chickpeas/Gram - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Green Chillies - 4
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs

How to cook Kobichi Bhaaji:
  • Soak Chana dal in water for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, wash curry leaves and green chillies.  Pat them dry.  Finely chop cabbage, cilantro leaves and medium chop green chillies.
  • Wash the soaked dal well.
  • Heat about 2 tsp oil in a kadhai/wok and add mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida.  When mustard seeds pop, add washed dal.  Add about 1 cup water and cook it covered until dal softens. 
  • Now add chopped cabbage and green chillies.  Saute for 2 - 3 minutes.  Lastly, add salt, turmeric and chopped cilantro.  Mix and cook it covered at low flame.  Keep checking after every 2 minutes. 
  • Continue cooking till cabbage turns soft and water evaporates.  You can add 1 - 2 tbsp grated coconut while cooking or as a garnish if you like.
Serve Kobi Bhaji as a side dish with rice or roti.
