This is a recipe for my bachelor friends who have been asking me to give simple recipes for them šŸ™‚ A quick and simple recipe to pack for lunch. Just by name don’t worry that its going have lots of oil šŸ˜› NO I just used 1/2 a teaspoon of oil for this.



Cabbage : 15 to 20 leaves ( chopped fine)

Onions : 1/4 of a large

Green Chili : 2

Unsweetened Shredded Coconut : 1 tablespoon (optional)

Turmeric Powder : a pinch (optional)

Salt : 1/4 teaspoon

To Temper:

Oil : 1/2 teaspoon

Mustard Seeds : 1/4 teaspoon

Urad dal : 1/4 teaspoon

Channa dal : 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin seeds : 1/4 teaspoon

Curry Leaves : Few


  • Throw the chopped cabbage in a pan, add 1 tablespoon of water(not more than that).
  • Add a pinch of salt to this and heat it at high for 3 to 4 mins.
  • Cabbage would shrink and get boiled, no more water would not be left. Cool and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add items in to temper.
  • Next add onions, green chili. Let it turn translucent. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt to this and mix.
  • Add turmeric powder if using.
  • Add the boiled cabbage mix well. As cabbage is already cooked, just mixing well is enough.
  • Stop in just 2 to 3 mins, add the coconut if using.


A very easy and a fast recipe, just would take around 10 to 15 mins totally.
