This spicy curry is inspired by a recipe by the cookbook author Madhur Jaffrey. I?ve seen other vegetarian recipes for cabbage cooked with dal (which I?ve made optional here, so you don?t have to go to a special Indian market), spices and coconut, but this one is the only one I?ve seen that?s enriched at the end with warmed yogurt. Make sure that you don?t let the yogurt get too hot or it will curdle. For a vegan dish, omit the yogurt. (Recipe by Martha Rose Shulman, copied from NY Times)

Recipe Ingredients for South Indian Cabbage

2 tbsp Oil, Vegetable Corn, Salad Or Cooking
2 tsp Spices Mustard Seeds
0.013 cup Chana Dal
1.5 tsp Cumin Seed
1/4 tsp Cayenne
0.5 tsp Turmeric, Ground
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
1 head, small (about 4-1/2" dia) Cabbage
0.25 cup, shredded Coconut Meat
8 oz Lowfat Plain

Recipe Directions for South Indian Cabbage

  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a 14-inch wok or 12-inch skillet, and add the mustard seeds and dal (if using). As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop, add the cumin, chilies or cayenne, coriander seeds and turmeric. Stir together, and add the onion. Cook, stirring, until it begins to soften, about three minutes. Add the cabbage. Cook, stirring, for one minute until it begins to wilt. Salt generously, stir together, cover and turn the heat to low. Cook for about eight minutes until the cabbage is just tender. Stir in the coconut, taste and adjust seasoning. Keep warm.

  2. Place the yogurt in a bowl, and place the bowl in a pot of hot water. Stir until the yogurt is warm. Scrape into the pan with the cabbage, and fold in. Serve warm with rice.
