Let me decipher what Hirvi Kobi Tava Bhaji is..Hirvi means greeen, kobi is cabbage, tava/tawa is pan or griddle, bhaji is vegetable. I had the last quarter of the cabbage head lying in the fridge since couple of days, so thought to go ahead with it. This tawa bhaji, I guess is the most simplest with ingredients as well as preparation is concerned and so one of the favourite quick dishes!!! The green color of the dish is from the generous use of cilantro or coriander leaves.
3 cups cabbage thinly sliced
3 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
3 green chillies
1/2 cup chopped cilantro/coriander
salt to taste
1. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. As the seeds start to pop add the finely cut green chillies. Saute for a 1/2 min.
2.Immediately add the thinly sliced cabbage and saute for about 5 mins on little over medium flame.
3 Add cilantro/corriander and salt and stri fry for another 2 - 3 minutes.
4. Serve with chapati/roti or a loaf of bread. Can also have it as a side/salad.
Preparation Time: 10 minsServes: 1 - 2
Note: Do not use water in this dish and do not cover the pan anytime during the sauteing, or after the dish is done. This is to maintain the crunchiness of the sliced cabbage.
