Cabbage Sabzi

Cabbage Sabzi is an extremely simple sabzi to make. You can serve it with chapatis or as a side dish with your main meals. This is a must have sabzi at my home whenever I prepare Mangalorean fish curry and rice. Here goes the recipe.


1 medium sized cabbage (approx. 3 cups chopped cabbage)
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp split black gram (udad dal)
1 tsp mustard seeds (rai)
2 green chillies (chopped into large pieces)
few curry leaves
2 tbsp grated fresh coconut
Salt as per taste

Cabbage Sabzi


  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Add udad dal and mustard seeds.
  • When the seeds start crackling, add chopped garlic, curry leaves, chopped chillies, chopped onion and saute for a minute.
  • Add chopped cabbage and saute.
  • Add turmeric powder and salt as per taste.
  • Mix well.
  • Allow the cabbage to cook on slow flame for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
  • Add grated fresh coconut and mix.
  • Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve Cabbage sabzi with rotis or as a side dish with rice and curry.


I do not cover the pan while cooking cabbage as the cabbage tends to get mushy if the pan is covered. Also I do not add any water while cooking this sabzi.
