A beautifully spiced, Indian take on a classic cabbage side.
We usually think of cabbage as having a strong affinity with Eastern European flavors, but it works beautifully with Indian flavors as well. This is a quick and easy vegetable dish that is a great side for your favorite Indian curry, or part of a spread of several different types of vegetable dishes. A combination of seeds -- fennel, sesame, and cumin -- create a subtle, earthy spice that’s then heightened by the addition of warm garam masala and bright cayenne and lemon juice. So, when you have half a head of cabbage in the fridge, and you’re not in the mood for coleslaw or cabbage and apples, give these Indian flavors a try!
