HOT LUNCH RECIPE WAGON: Cabbage with Red Chiles

Indian cooks from the south use coconut as frequently as cooks in the north use onions – and it features in both sweet and savory dishes.  The shredded cocnut in this recipe can be replaced with freshly grated coconut.

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 dried red chilies

1 teaspoon brown mustard seeds

4 ¼ cups finely shredded white cabbage

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon shredded coconut

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat.  Add the chilies and mustard seeds, continue frying for 30 seconds, stirring , or until they begin to splutter. Be careful to prevent burning
  • Add the cabbage and salt, then increase the heat to medium high. Fry stirring  constantly, 5 to 6 minutes until the cabbage is tender
  • Stir in the lemon juice and coconut.  Pack warm in a heated lunch tote for a hot lunch on the go.
