Hi friends today i made simple potato with cabbage sabzi. Cabbage is incredibly nutritious very low in fat and calories. Fresh cabbage is an excellent source of natural antioxidant, vitamin c, vitamin k, it also contains potassium , manganese, iron and magnesium and most important its ideal for weight loss.

There are different type of cabbages available: green cabbage, red cabbage etc. This recipe can be used with any of them. There are quite many sabzi we can make with cabbage......let's start with a simple one.

Note :
    • If you want to remove starch from potato, soak chopped potato for half an hour to one hour. Discard the water. 

    • Do not add water in to it as cabbage is a leafy vegetable. All leafy vegetables would leave water.
    • You should add garam masala in the end, this will give better taste and aroma. 
Serve it with hot chapati, paratha. This is also a good combo to carry as home cooked food in travels. You can make paratha / puri and serve it with this sabzi.
