Cooking method for cabbage subji

  • Heat oil in a pan. Keep heat medium.

  • Add green chilli pieces. Fry for 5 seconds.
  • Add chopped cabbage. Mix and Cover.
  • Reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add ginger/garlic paste, curry leaves. stir.Add salt, sugar.
  •  Stir and continue cooking.
  • Cover and cook on low flame till cabbage is just done. Add a little water only if needed to cook softer.
  • Add chopped Coriander leaves(cilantro). Mix well.
  • Switch off the flame.

Keep covered till serving time.

Garnish with freshly grated coconut and chopped dhania (cilantro) leaves when serving.

Serve it hot or at room temperature with chapati or plain rice.


You may add more chana dal if you wish.

You may add red chili powder instead of green chilies. The color will change accordingly and you can see that in the image above. I like it more with red chili powder .

There is no need to add water to this recipe. Cabbage contains enough water. When you add sugar and salt, this water will be released. That is enough for the cabbage and chana dal to be just cooked.

If you like to cook it still softer, add 1 or 2 table spoons of water.To reduce final cooking time, you can steam chopped cabbage for 10 minutes before adding to seasoning.

Or you can pressure cook cabbage and then add to the prepared seasoning and then stir fry.
