Another favorite dish of mine Burmese style, which is one thing we love to eat at my Mom’s home. This delicious cabbage chutney tastes so yummy with dal & chawal. You can also eat it as a regular salad if you are watching your weight.
It has the right amount of tanginess and heat to tickle your taste buds. If you haven’t had it before it might be a couple of times before you start liking or may be not. My 7 year old loved it. This dish is from my Mom’s kitchen, hope you all like it.
- 1 medium sized cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2 medium or 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 whole garlic pod, chopped
- 1 red onion, sliced lengthwise
- 1 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp red chili powder
- salt to taste
- 1-2 green chilies, chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3-4 tbsp roasted besan
- juice of 1 lemon or lime
- cilantro chopped
- 2-3 tbsp chopped peanuts
First cut the cabbage as thinly sliced as you can. Wash it in a colander and let the water drain completely. Add chopped green chilies to it and set aside.Now chop the garlic. Heat the oil in a kadhai, add chopped garlic and sauté until slightly brown.
Now add the tomato and garlic mixture on top of everything. Squeeze the lemon juice on it too along with the chopped cilantro. Mix everything together using your hand as if you are kneading the dough.
